To revive this old topic, this popped up at the SOS this weekend:

Indeed I did. It is now residing in my gun safe.

Gentlemen, I can tell you that you have to see this bar (in person) to really appreciate it. Congratulations Beau! :cheers:

Difficult indeed. I stupidly purged most of my noncombatant stuff in the mid-1990s when I went over to Soviet... and have not been able to find anything to replace The Lost Goodies.

This Old Style looks like WW1,



but actually belonged to Dr. Kohlstock, an African livestock diseases specialist who died of something nasty in China in 1901.

The "white-black" "EK" here was actually a Prussian Crown Order 4X from the 1890s. This was his assignment to the Schutztruppen Colonial Main Office in 1899:


And one of my few pre-1930s WW1 noncombatant bars is actually a mxture-- "black-white" EK



BUT Anhalt Friedrich Cross ribbon with white, not pink, edges for noncombatants:

What WOULD we do without my Evil twin's sisnister global network of cherry ribbon bar pickers? wub.gif

I think this is it for me. Rick L helped me on this one. I like it because it is a two war bar without a Hindenburg Cross. I seem to not like those anymore due to their connection with the TR.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • 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.
