Air Warning Service (Luftschutze-warndienst--LSW)

The Air Warning Service was established in 1935. It's purpose was to warn the population of air raids. It's members were volunteers or, during the war drafted according to the War Emergency Laws. The female personnel were the Auxiliaries of the Air Warning Service

Next is a bit of an unknown, it's a shoulder board for an official of the medium career with a dark green waffenfarbe and a grey nebenfarbe and the equivalent rank of Feldwebel.,And thats where the mystery begins, I cant find what that colour stands for. IIRC someone had a set of grey tabs what was the consensus on those?

Gathering of the clan;

Starting with Peter J's orphan red nebenfarbe board, looks like I am only missing Black, white, golden brown, bark blue and apple green.

I will keep my eyes open for the missing admin boards. I would love to see you with all of them!!! The Apple Green would be one heck of a find as they were only used for a very short amount of time... early on!

    • 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.
