The other lot on the current auction also has unpleasant nature: shoulder-boards pair of sub-ensign (podpraporshik) of the 48th Infantry Odesski Rgt of the Emperor Alexander I is undoubtedly a modern build-up using a set of probably original insignia and original lace stripes.

All Cossack units had silver lace, however there were two shades of blue. Light blue (svetlo-sinie) was designated for Tersky Cossacks and dove - blue (golubie) was designated for Orenburg Cossacks. I have checked Tersky Cossacks had 152nd regiment ( 152-й Терский казачий полк ).

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.

    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
