That is really a beautiful piece.

A lot of work went into making it, thanks for sharing it.

Thank you also for reopening this thread. I have to take a little trip to pick up

something that I think might fit in here.

Best wishes,

Wild Card

Perhaps one of you can give me more detail on this one. I have it listed as Prussian Landwehr Dienstauzzeichnung II Klasse, Empire . It was given to me in the '80's by a old German refugee who only knew that it was from his father. I've forgotten where I came up with the name; possibly Jeff.

Actually not. Baden's LD came in only one class, so it's not a "2nd" class.

Lovely one, by the way. :cheers:

Hi Sascha,

sorry for the mistake - but I have read at Ohm-Hieronymussen (p. 31) that "...Badische Offiziere erhielten die preussischen Auszeichnungen." and thought they got the cross for 2o years as 1st class. you know it better - thanks for the correction!

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
