    It appears to be a copy produced by Orbis-Photo who has offices in Hamburg and Berlin. There are many copies of such pictures and the price reflects the subject more than it does rarity. It looks contemporary to wartime but the price seems steep to me.

    I've has quite a few Press photos in my collection and bearing in mind they were generally well thumbed and used the label etc on this one looks in very new and unused condition and not in a format i've seen before , comparison with Gwars shows what i'm saying !

    1st July 1916

    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

    Thank you gentlemen, I've decided not to buy it, but for future reference this is great information!

    The pencil marking (in dutch) next to the note translates to:

    AD - 1st Column Full publishment. (Maybe Algemeen Dagblad) A newspaper in the Netherlands, although its first edition was on 29 april 1946.

    wonder one didn't slip and loose an eyeball? so it was sort of a badge of honor, to have your face disfigured. why didn't the doctors stitch the wounds up after? and when did it stop, was a certain time limit or a clock. as I remember that ERNST ROHM had them also?

    The act of duelling wasn’t uncommon and until the TR banned such actions it was not uncommon among the elite of society to duel and indeed relish those scars that they might sustain.

    The "duellists" had their eyes blindfolded with a thick leather bindfold to prevent eye damage. They then faced each other blind and were not allowed to move their bodies, only their fencing hand with the intention of cutting the opponent's face. After blood had been drawn, the person was deliberately and very crudely stitched in order to leave behind the wished for scar, which was seen as a badge of honour/courage. Similar to freemasonry, the duelling scar was a means by which doors could be opened in those days, which had nothing to do with National Socialism.
