SHARKHUNTERS International
Northern Patrol 2012
Friday 24 August 2012

Sharkhunters Member, our friend and our guide for this day DIETER FUNK (7368-2008) helped Sharkhunters honor the fallen soldiers at this Soldiers' Cemetery.  It is very rare that there can be a sign indicating that a cemetery is for the fallen of World War Two.  It is here in Hamburg.

 
     
 
     
 
     
 

Sadness over the loss of a loved one - brother, father or

 

husband is universal.

  All these scenes are
                                        inside this structure in peace and quiet.
     
 

Who doesn't know that, according to ancient mythology, when you die you must cross the River Styx and this scene depicts the boatman taking a family across.  This is a beautiful and serene place.

Max Schmeling
  
Do you remember the name Max Schmeling?  He was a boxer and Heavyweight Champion of the World and he was a German Fallshirmjäger (paratrooper).  He also owned a brewery and DIETER showed it.

 

The giant painting of Schmeling the boxer is no longer in the lobby but the brewery is going full speed.
