    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

    Hi Steve

    Nice VDA badge, and nice tinnie (Köln 34-01). I have a lot of VDA items, I'll get moving and make a thread.

    The tinnie is particularly interesting since it represents one of the most important expositions held in Germany before the war. The three patrons for Colonial Exposition in Köln in 1934 were the former and last governor of Toga (1912-14), Herzog Adolf Friedrich zu Meklenburg, the last governor of German East Africa (1912-19), Dr. Heinrich Schnee, and the recently appointed chief of the Colonial Policy Office, Franz Xaver Ritter von Epp.

    These former soldiers are veterans of the war in Africa and are all from Köln, shown here on the opening day of the exposition. The three below are Schnee, zu Meklenburg, and von Epp.

    Nice pieces Steven. I recently read a short article about Germany's high hopes for their African colonies, I had no idea. Hitler and some of his cronies actually used this experience as a partial guide to colonizing the East. Great photos DR, I think I see where President T.R. got the idea for his hat.
