Konigstein... in Bavaria -- there is another one near Frankfurt. 

You do not want that one!

Not asking for a ten digit grid on this just the town Zur Poste is in is close enough for me.

Mike,

E-mail Chris Golden and have him send you the details. I think the two main rally points are the Wilder Mann and Zur Post.

Working on the details planning on bringing the new HH6 to see the old haunts. Is there a LOI?

Just shelled out about four grand for my plane ticket to the Regimental Homecoming -Birthday at Vilseck/Grafenwoehr in May. Forty years ago I would have paid that much not to go there!

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
