    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 did think about that but he sells lots of photos and he stresses how 'original' they are; I'm hoping that I'm onto something here.

    Post 1950 would raise all Sorts of red flags for Me..."original" could well mean an "a reprint of an original image". Sounds pretty shady to me, when sellers start using purposefully vague and misleading language in their descriptions. Bottom line, if the seller Specifically said it was "Post 1950" then it's almost certainly to be taken as a Reprint. Sure hope you didn't bid too much! William

    Never rush anything when it comes to buying militaria, especially if you are unsure about originality etc

    Thanks
