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.

    • 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.
