    I think this one was posted earlier this week, and was acknowledged to be bad. I'll see if I can find it.

    It says ober schutz inside the helmet, this is a waffen ss rank not heer.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    What provenance does this have to the Channel Islands ??

    Oberschutze is a Heer rank if SS it would be SS Oberschutze !!

    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

    Meant to say Oberschütze, and there is a Heer Oberschütze which is a trade title, so it could be heer. My bad.

    I would definitely not write this one off before seeing more detailed close ups of the paint.
