    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

    Quite a few of them exist with different Kompanie numbers added , they are believed to have been found at the Debica / Heidelager training grounds in Poland and although original they had no company number so someone decided to stamp one on the tags.
