    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

    No I have not, as I know of no one with that type of expertise anywhere in my area. I live in Wisconsin. Do you know of anyone like that anywhere close? If I could once get the pictures posted I think your doubts would be answered. I have been a military relics enthusiast all of my adult life and much of my youth, having received my first antique infantry rifle at the age of nine, in 1951. I don't profess to be an expert in SS relics, but in over 50 years of collecting I have seen lots of it, and this item sure looks right to me. Will someone PLEASE help me get the photos up on the site?

    I am posting these images for new member Philzie. However, it is not a RK citation. But refers to the award of an Honour Sword.

    Thoughts please Gents.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade:
    Thanks for the help with the photos. Although my German is far from even mediocre, does not DAS RITTERKREUZ translate to THE KNIGHT'S CROSS? I realize that a sword is also mentioned, but the wording is a little obscure.

    Thanks for posting the photos Ade , unfortunately Philzie this confirms my suspicions this is is a fake / fantasy document i'm afraid , the Himmler signature is bad , the quality of the work on the document is poor , not something the Reichsfuhrer SS would have condoned or put his name too and it has no relation to any Ritterkreuz award document either preliminary or Mappe. As you point out the wording is very obscure and incorrect.

    Sorry about that i hope you didn't pay a lot for it !!

    I am with Paul on this one, the Himmler signature is rather terrible, the printing if the ink is very shabby also. Bit of a bummer it's not the RK doc.
