    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

    Could be a SS shield or Could also be a lion badge taken off the 1920s Army arm band, its a trick thats being done at the moment , buy a Finnish army 1920s arm band remove the lion badge and sell it as a SS shield for more money, when this lion badge has been added to the cover I wouldn't like to say , Did you get it off German ebay as there was one that looked like it for sell on there a month or so ago ?
    I think it's from a 1920's armband, but that it was glued on during wartime. You can never know for sure tho.
