    Hello-it seems strange that an item like this doesn't mention the event or even the name of the individual being commemorated but does mention the state-are you sure it's not a coincidence?-things happen every day that aren't related.

    lithgow.....as explained in the intro, when I first bought the item, the seller in Germany told me the story ...but I didnt buy it for the story (nobody should buy items purely on the story!), I bought the item...only when i researched, did I find HIS story to be true, nothing of any significance happened on this day in Kiel in 1914 to make me believe otherwise. But of course I shall stand corrected if any new information should come to light.
