HERES A STICK PIN I OWN, IT CAME WITH A GROUPING OF FREIKORP ITEMS AND ALSO HAD A WW1 TANKERS BADGE STICK PIN WITH IT, SO NOT SURE IF THE STICK PIN SKULL IS DUE TO BEING A TANKER OR FREIKORPS, DUE TO ALL OF IT WAS TOGETHER?? BUT A VERY NICE AND RARE STICK PIN.

:cheers: Mike!!!! The oval insignia is VerKuilen Ager's #110, which I don't think has ever been attributed to a specific unit.

The cross is the Cross of the Baltic Landwehr-- in my opinion the most interesting of the 1919 awards since it was worn by Germans, Latvians-- and British! Supposedly latvian to oust the Bolsheviks, it was taken over by the Germans, who were then squeezed out when the Latvian government called in British aid. It's last commander became British Field Marshal Alexander of WW2 fame.

Absolute beauties, like Eric's I'm just seeing now.

    • 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.
