Paul, I wish I had many gold pips to send to you, they always seem to be mising (usually just the one) on Epaulets that I have.

If it wasn't for you I wouldn't know what the odd collar patch (post 67) that I have was at all!!

Here is a nice set to a Fl. Hauptingenieur! If anyone has a set of two matching Officer pips, please keep me in mind!

Anyway, this set was generously donated to me by a fellow forum member!!! Thank you!



Very nice Paul! :love: I am still working on getting the full set of shoulder boards. They are much harder to find than the tabs.

Thanks for the kind words Pete and Bill.

Here is set of tabs for a Major in the "Corps of Engineering Officers". Although the color appears a bit dark, the waffenfarbe is indeed pink

Is it named?

Yes, I can not fully make out the name and am not having much success photographing the tag. I will try some more and post the best ones to see if someone can decipher it.

    • 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.
