De geuzenvendels rukken aan, romdiredom!
Na eeuwen zijn zij opgestaan, romdiredom!
Zie hun vlaggen vliegen in de wind!
Hoor, een nieuwe geuzentijd begint,
met slaande trom, met slaande trom ! Romdiredom!
Het volk zijn oude kracht hervindt.

De geuzenvendels trekken op, romdiredom!
Hun vuist is hard en hard hun kop, romdiredom!
d'Oude geuzentijd is weer ontwaakt,
heeft een eind aan nacht en nood gemaakt,
met slaande trom, met slaande trom ! Romdiredom.
Het Dietse volk wordt sterk gemaakt.

De geuzenvendels leven weer, romdiredom!
Zij slaan met gloed de vijand neer, romdiredom!
Want der vad'ren bloed brandt in hun ziel,
en zij vechten weer als voor Den Briel,
met slaande trom, met slaande trom ! Romdiredom!
Tot eer van wie voor Dietsland viel!

During the Battle of Uman (3 to 8 August 1941), a mechanized body of the Carpathian Group formed double wings encircling the 6th and 12th Soviet units.

From 1942 to 1944 only the Slovak 1st Division was kept on the front-line, fighting in the Caucasus area and later in the southern Ukraine.
