Hi All:

At the request of AJ, I have reposted what I had initially placed in the German Translation Forum for those who might not have noticed it. It has been often cited, but I have never seen it published. I finally came across the actual order sent out to SS-Standartes from 4 July 1934 for the removal of the R�hm inscription from the Honor Daggers.

Kreta1961 was very kind to provide us a translation:

SS-Honor Daggers

At the previously issued SS-Honor Daggers, wearing the dedication of the former chief of staff R�hm "In cordial companionship", the dedication has got to be removed by grinding. To avoid higher costs, this grinding should be done locally, as possible. After removal of the dedication the dagger can be worn further."

I find it very interesting that the reason for the grinding to be done locally was primarily economic.
