I dunno Larry... I think it could be the whole "respect thy elders" thing! :lol: LOL


Very nice EM patch. Although I am not experienced enough to make a definative comment on breast eagles, I feel that yours are beautiful originals.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your attempt to enlighten me, but I think we have a small misunderstanding here.

My response was in reference to Laurence's post #47 and that one surely isn't blue, rather the

same as mine i.e. secondary colour red. My real dilemma is to differentiate green from brown.

Laurence, in these days, when Christmas is knocking on the door, brothers shouldn't be separated.

Please pm me your snail-mail address ;)

You are absolutely correct in your theory of the Official's tabs being light green(Air Traffic Control Service Officials). They are the only officials tabs in that color! These tabs were amoungst the first officials tabs released IAW Order 144 on the 22Apr1935! These are the first I have ever seen! Very nice find!

This information is as per page 121 of "Uniforms and Insignia of the Luftwaffe", Vol1 by Brian Davis

IF you ever find any more...

Merry Christmas

Diane is awesome. She has helped me out a lot as well... especially in the beginning. I actually just spoke with her on the phone last week about the grey tabs I have posted. That is another topic though.

Those tabs are real beauties and I am sure it will be a while before more surface!

Thank you for keeping an eye out for me.

    • 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. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. 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
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
