  1. Peter Meinlschmidt is back in Germany for good , I spoke with him few months ago . If anybody is still interested on his book I may provide his email address . I belive he still has few copies of his book for sale with regards Kornel
  2. Kornel,

    Did you see the Garde Res.Pion.Rgt. tag that Chris has shown in post #347? Is that the one you told me was a reproduction and that I cancelled my order for? It looks very familiar.

  3. I know it's out of the topic , I'm sorry but couldn't resist - Laphroaig , especially 10 y.o. is my favorite one !!!! my much older ex girlfriend ( many years ago ) once said about it - you'll love it or hate it , nothing between .... I can't disagree . best regards Kornel ps.
  4. Great photo Robin ! it's interesting how bright look the helmets ( from the right side ) - probably it's the effect of the direct sun light ... or some kind of light feldgrau or maybe unusual color like .. sand /clay ? with regards Kornel
  5. Hello Hardy ! Thank you very much for your reply , but at this moment ( after some info update ) have to disagree with you and try to explain why ... On the beginning I was also very skeptical and was interpreting it the very same way , but in between did some more research and ask couple more collectors . At first glance two friends basing on the late war structure told me "that's not the one" but after I found in Peter Meinlschmidt's book info about Flammenwerfer Truppen we agreed plus a collector / historian friend very knowledgeable and interested about the subject sent me the scan from the book " Das Ehrenbuch der deutschen Pioniere " which made me sure and ... very happy - soon I'll tell you why . So the 12. Kompagnie of the III GPB was not only part of flame thrower troops , they were actually "beginners" . thank you very much , thanks to all participants and interested best regards Kornel Below both scans from : 1) Peter Meinlschmidt " German WW I Identity Tags/Discs " 2) Koenigl. Pruess. Major Paul Heinrici " Das Ehrenbuch der deutschen Pioniere "
  6. I wouldn't mind to take these shoes off ... Lena Olin for example .... .... but back to Earth - can anyone tell me if 12. Kompanie of 3. Garde Pionier Bataillon , was a part of Flammenwerfer Truppen ? best regards Kornel
  7. don't even tell me Eric ... quiet few times and the worst part was when it went underpriced or at least for less then I was ready to pay .... damn it !! I never use a sniper , but if you participating in online auctions and want to live like a human ... this is a must ! best regards Kornel
