Thanks Kevin , yes same here especially the cufftitle , one guy on the British Ebay wants £40 for it !

Is there another arm patch ?

Yes, They are illustrated as fantasy items in on of my reference books. However they have been around so long that they have become collectable in their own right even thought they are known not to have existed in the DDR time.

Hi Grant,

That is a GST Qualifications badge for trainers/instructors , 2nd class in silver (Qualifizierungsabzeichen für Ausbilder /Instrukteure

Silber Stufe 2 )

Issued in three classes, Gold Stufe 1, Silver Stufe 2 and bronze Stufe 3 with miniatures by the Seesportverband der DDR (SSV)

A very large gem involving 2 of my interests the Rechsbahn and the kampfgruppen :

A silver medal for competition at the 5. Spartakiade der kampfgruppen - RBD - Dresden 1965

On the back it reads : Fur Frieden und Socialismus and has sieger in the middle .

Pictured next to a stasi anniversary shield so you get an idea of the size !

Does anyone on here know what ribbon went on these competition awards ?

    • 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.
