Hello Everyone

I have been away a while and now I am back with a few things to show.I have a late war soldbuch to a young man who joined the navy in August 1944.In early 1945 he was in the 19th u-flott and I also have him in the 9./2.U.L.D in early 1945.He was then drafted into the 4.(M.6)/Res.Gren.Batl.209 on the 31.1.1945 then the 8/Gr.Rgt.1062.If anyone can give me any info on the gren regiments that would be great.I also have a feldpost number that I do not know it is M 10643 I have it listed as the number for U225 as this was sunk in 1943 and the feldpost number is dated 30.1.1945 it must have been used again.I will put up some photos later.Any help given will be great...

Many thanks Richard..

I used to have a group to a Navy officer, who served with the Luftwaffe as a long range observer... then transfered back to the navy, did U-Boot training but the war ended before he could serve on a U-boot.

In 1957 he joined the Bundeswehr in a Panzer Brigade.

So U-Boot, Panzer and recon flyer ... some guys get around ;-)

    • 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.
