    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

    Nice pair of documents Leon - well done.

    Personally, I wouldn't chance steaming the paper off - bit risky that and would be a great shame to spoil the pieces you have just acquired. The card doesn't detract too much anyway, and will at least help to keep them nice and flat!

    Agreed Carl,it was only a fleeting thought,until I "sobered up!" Just not worth the risk damageing these lovely historical pieces. Leon.

    FJ items are always nice to get. As for the signatures I'm afraid that they are not handsigned. Both bear stamped signatures although with the Student one it is always difficult to be 100% certain due to his 'small' signature.

    Hi Hucks,i think the Student signature is also a print but i'm not to bothered about that.I'm more interested in the man who won the awards and any history I can attribute to him(hopefully).That said,had the signatures been those of Hitler/Rommel etc,i would be most disappointed that they were prints!!! Leon.

    Found some information on Karl Eisenfeller and a couple of pictures!!!! Just waiting for the book with some of his memories in to arrive from amazon.I also found out that the documents that are missing from the group are a Kreta cuff title award/Luftwaffe ground assault badge and as I had already mentioned at the beginning(as it was obvious) an EK2 award. Such a shame this historical grouping has been split up. Leon
