19rh October 2003 celebrations at Herrlingen near Ulm. It was a moving commemoration with speeches of:
- Karl-Heinz Glinder, President of Verband Deutsches Afrikakorps e.V.
- General K.H. Lather, German Army and commanding General of the joint German-American Corps at Stuttgart.
- Dr. Manfred Rommel, Son of the FM (Field Marshal)
Many flags, flowers. The sun was shining but it was a very cool day.
