    It says "The death of youth!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Oh right, thanks Gunny, gets to the point i suppose, youth from many countries died to young and you have to say now days what on earth for.

    I would have thought it was a comment about the 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend, the rune with the key is their divisional symbol!

    Thanks again Gunny, i dont usually go for these as i think relics are best untouched but it was cheap and i suppose as you say has a dedication to those boys.

    Nicely done in an arts and crafts way. Sometimes I use writing on my cases or displays that I make. Its fun to do and looks pretty good. The writing style is called fracture. According to what I found on the net it was used in Germany to about 1940.

    This is really nice, while it has been done post war, it is almost a memorial, and I think it's very nice!
