    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

    61 ID are now advancing into Tallinn from the east and south east , in these pictures they have just broken through the last Russian defence line around the city and they are moving down Tartu mantee towards the city centre from the area where the airport is now passing the old paper mill to the left , the mill and the wall outside still exist today.
