Germany ended up winners 3-2 and both the Walter brothers contributed magnificently to this.
Their names have always been in my memory since that day when I watched the match on a flickering black & white television set but I had no idea what had become of them. This morning's Guardian made reference to the obituary (on line) of Ottmar Walter who was 89 years old. Fritz had died in 2002. Both would have been featured on the 'On this Day' thread but their names had not appeared on my sources. Their dates of death are both this month. Ottmar died on 16th June 2013 and Fritz per-deceased him, having died on 17th June 2002. I'm late with my message of respect, but I respect them nevertheless for their contributions to their game and to their nation.
