:D You don't want to count how many times I've played it :D Especially this year (no particular reason, it just got stuck in my mind... to be precise, the "Als die Preußen marschierten vor Prag" catchy tune haunts me nearly every day :D )

Cheers,
Ivan

And still no text of the last song deciphered ("Die Kraftradschützen, die sind wir" on "Hipp, hipp, hurrah" motives)?

By "text" do you mean lyrics?

I doubt that a printed/official copy of the lyrics exists, I believe it was an arrangement made specially for the medley, likely by a member or members of the chorus (Kradsch.Kp. Aufkl.Abt. 3). The same as the lyrics were rewritten to fit the chorus in "Deutscher Kampf im Lied" and elsewhere. I don't think it would be too hard to write down the lyrics by hearing though, perhaps mr. F. could give it a try when/if he finds the time.

Cheers,
Ivan

Well, mr. Auceps :D here and I tried to recognize the lyrics five years ago and it was not 100% successfully.
  • Die Kraftradschützen, die sind wir,
    zum Kampfe stets bereit, ja stets bereit.
    Des Vaterlandes höchste Zier
    voll Mut und Tapferkeit.

    Wir halten unsr'e Waffen hoch
    und räumen nie das Feld.
    Es stürmt ein wahrer MG-Schütz'
    für's Vaterland _____.

    Ja, eins, zwei, drei, wir sind die _____ Kraftradschützen,
    hipp, hipp, hurrah, hipp, hipp, hurrah!
    Auf uns kann sich die Heimat stützen,
    hipp, hipp, hurrah _____!

Hahah, yes, I remember that, Herr Fallersleben. :D And it seems that now we have less gaps in the lyrics than at those time.

Only another guess for the last gap: "... die M. G. K.!"; MGK = Maschinengewehr-Kompanie

Wow it does sound like that and it does make sense. In any case, great thinking, F., I would have never thought of that.
