    This is his discharge papers issued by the US. Every German soldier captured had to be discharged from the army ( officially ) to return to civilian life. This for Otto occurred on 29th April 1947. His form ( complete with right thumbprint ) is fragile but still complete.

    Another item I have never seen before??

    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

    Just going through some of my paper documents and came across this set again so I thought I'd revisit this old thread from a couple of years back.
