    Default German Soldiers Memorial Picture

    Hello, just got this from a local antiques dealer. The German text says something like 'You died too Soon and will be dreadfully missed. You were so kind and good you will never be forgotten.' It is not named.

    I think its a poignant piece, and I especially like the pressed cardboard EK2 (actual sized). This would originally have been framed but the frame has gone.

    I like these memorial stuff. I found a lot in an antiques store in Germany but they were too big for me to carry.
    I have only this which i have bought from the internet.
