      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.

        AV58819/ The flagpole tops of the Reichskriegerbund for the donation of metal.
        On Friday afternoon during an inspection by the Reichskriegerbund Leaders, a delegation of 1000 Berlin war comrades donated metal from the German people at the police market in the setting of a short commemorative ceremony. Our photo comes from this report. The flagpole tops weigh in at 2 ½ kilograms.

          2463/ West Wall workers are being awarded the Iron Cross by the commander-in-chief of the Army.
          In the name of the Führer, Generaloberst von Brauchitsch awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class to 11 West Wall workers who constructed fortifications in the farthest front line under cold blooded and circumspect enemy fire. On the birthday of the Führer, Dr. Todt represented three of these West Wall to the commander-in-chief of the Army. They were Frontführer (SA-Oberführer) Hans-Gerhard Breymann from Göttingen (in uniform), Vorarbeiter Franz Hoffmann from Essen (in the middle) and Engineer and Betriebsfphrer Karl Göttert from Weisel.

            41131/ The Norwegian National Sanctuary is undamaged.
            Once again a horrible enemy lie is burst. The destruction of the mother of God picture from Tschenstochau was broadcast in a false enemy radio message. The destruction of the consecrated Norwegian place in Eidsvoll-Bygningen was proven a horrible lie. This picture proves the building housing the 1814 Norwegian constitution proclamation is completely undamaged.
