Nice officer's eagle you started with-- too many of them are UGLY and look "starving" or otherwise misshapen.

Breast eagle and visor cap eagle for size comparison.

[attachmentid=9490]

[attachmentid=9492]

Odd that the larger tunic eagle has a smaller swastika than the little cap eagle, but it is just this sort of hand-made uniqueness that IF we were lucky enough to have a cap like in Michel's Uboat commander thread, we could say THIS insignia is being worn in THAT photo.i

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did.

When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
