I had the honour and pleasure to attend Rudolf von Ribbentrop's funeral service at his home yesterday. It was a beautiful service and very fitting for this wonderful man. Rest in Peace my old and dear friend.

Default At the funeral of the last KC holder

At the funeral of the last KC holder, I would like to represent him on behalf of all KC holders. If the German state does not make it then possibly part of the WAF and the German MFF.

I believe 6. I think I had 60-80 addresses back in 2009 a few members helped me with. Half still corresponded. Its sad, but they've made it to their loved ones and comrades that went before.
