Hi Paul,

Something interesting...

On Page 37 of Uniforms and Traditions of the Luftwaffe, Vol 2, There is a discussion on various collar tabs of Admin General Officers. IAW the forestated reference, on 19Aug44 there was a Construction branch of the Administrative Service that had BLACK collar tabs with gold embroidered triangles and wreath...

So why not more junior rankings within the "Construction Admin", or even Wartime Specialists(this would explain your two sets).

I learn something new every time I crack this books open!

Regards

Paul

    • 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. 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
