    Found this article today, seems poor Rochus is now finding it hard to reply for autographs, due to his advancing years....Lucky I have two!!

    What a witness to history Herr Misch is, wish i'd heard about this prior to his retiring from the autograph signing business...

    Rochus used have his bath at home full of letters from collectors so it's no surprise he's had enough at his age !!

    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

    It would appear Herr Misch has given up signing autographs as he is now terminally ill and wishes to be left to die in peace. Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express | Express Yourself :: The last survivor of Hitler’s downfall - The Fuhrer's bodyguard gives last interview

    The last link to Hitlers final days will soon be but a footnote in history, I sincerely hope he goes gently.

    Correct. There are not many years left until all we have to look back on is our collections and history books. But dont worry Stefan, this is a great hobby to get into at any time. Except for there families, we as collectors will be some of the important few who make sure they are never forgotten.
