Gerd von Rundstedt Hand Signed Note from Nürnberg Trials-Field Marshall Ger von Rundstedt personally signed this note. It is part of a group that we were recently able to acquire which included a number of autographs from a guard at the Nuremburg Trials. The name of the guard was SFC George Wickham (RA 6667428) who served as a Military Police soldier. He stayed in the service and we have his 1951-2 personal calendar/diary which indicates he stayed in the service and in Korea sees considerable action. Wickham also wrote a note on the front and back of this piece of paper. It says:

"Autograph-Von Rundstedt.

0700               Field Marschal (sic)

Rundstedt after standing in the hot sun said that this treatment was outrageous. The British treat me according to my rank, and respect my standing as a field marshall. But the Bloody (he used the typical English expression) yanks treat me like a P.F.C.

Rundstedt spoke very good English."

On lined paper with some minor discoloration and folding marks. Wow, a very unique item!
