Army mouht Edel Weiss badge was initially linked to Narvik,but later in the war linked also to other devices although those had not served in Narvik Battle.

A Narvik related Soldbuch is this one to a sailor who served on one of the destroyers and was wounded during the battle. Unfortunately as the Kriegsmarine didn't start issuing SB until June 1941, and by then this sailor was serving on Z-23, it isn't possible to identify what destroyer he was on during the battle. As far as I can find out there are no casualty lists for the ships involved that actually name those wounded. It comes with a colourised image with the cap band having an emblem on it but I haven't been able to identify it to see if it helps narrow down the possibilities.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
