'Sieg oder Unsieg ruht in Gottes Hand / Der Ehre
sind wir selber Herr und König!

Victory or Defeat rests in Gods Hand / Of Honour
 we are Lord and King!

War memorial in the village of St. Jakob in Defereggen, built in 1927. The same quote can be found  on one of the bronze plaques.

One of Sluytermans most familiar pieces.  Often the swastika on the Lancers shield is printed with a three armed triskilion - however the original art depicted the swastika, as above.
