    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

    Indeed Stewy , wonder where they have disappeared to over the years . I have been where he was fighting on the Narva Front many times , he certainly earned his awards in these Battles and the conditions they were fought in !
