    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I have 2 unopened bottles of German brandy from pre-WWII era. I contacted the producer (they are still in business) and even they did not know the exact production date. They only said it is late 20-ies or 30-ies.
