    The names of the 3 men Dean !!
    Abbreviated ranks and names, to be exact; they were a Wachtmeister / Oberwachtmeister / Wachtmeister.

    (Wachtmeister was used instead of Feldwebel in the artillery, cavalry, smoke troops and a few other branches/formations.)

    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

    Sorry, Mo, but no: It says "Dampferfahrt" = "steamer ride". (Obviously not at that precise moment, though.)

    [Puts on obnoxious teacher's hat ] By the way: The exact word Pferdfahrt does not exist anyway; it would have to be "Pferdefahrt", which is not a horseride, but a ride in a horse-drawn vehicle. Also, its grammatical gender is feminine, hence "Die Pferdefahrt".
    Thank you for the correction. I thought that a horseride would be odd.

    German is such a beautiful language. I will attempt to translate as you do, so feel free to correct me anytime. I need to keep myself from forgetting what I know.

    Try as I might, I can't make out the second word:

    "Brennende [...] auf Flugplatz
    BEI ALKMERKE
    "

    ...i.e.:

    "Burning [...] on airfield
    NEAR ALKMERKE
    "

    I cannot find a place named "Alkmerke" (which does not sound Russian anyway); the closest I can come up with is Almkerk in the Netherlands.



    "Heim zu unseren Mädels" = "Home to our girls"
    Hah! I like the last one. And the burning village is most likely the Nederlands and the soldat misplelled it.
    Thanks a lot Andreas, I knew I could count on you!

    Heres a strange image. It looks like German soldats looking through a KZ or conquered military base for supplies? Any opinions on this are very welcome.
