2458b/ Flagpole tops of the traditional flags for the scrap pile.
On 19 April, the eve of the birthday of the Führer, flagpole tops of the traditional flags of the NS-Reichskriegerbund of General Freiherr von Grote are collected for scrap metal for the Führer in a solemn ceremony in the plaza behind the state playhouse in Berlin. The Hitler Youth see to the collection effort and gather the flagpole tops in a large basket.
19 April 1940 Atlantic
