    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

    Incredible Horst! The engraving on the inside is fantastic. You need to skip over to Germany more often.

    The ring was made ​​in the POW captivity - Sterling is not German. therefore, no swastika. I like it.
