I would not pay spit extra for Sperrle, all the LW ones have a good name on them, but I agree this unit is fantastic !!!!! Probably worth what the Sperrle inflation was!

I agree, and I think the same goes for Kesselring signatures. In my experience he signed A LOT of EK documents from 1940-1943. His is an interesting signature to own but it certainly isn't uncommon. Generally, its the air units on the docs that he signed that are often more desireable than his actual signature.

A 1939 dated EK II citation and a 1940 dated EK I citation awarded to the gunnery officer onboard Scharnhorst, Ernst Dominik, who would go on to serve as the Second in Command onbaord the ship when she was sunk and was awarded the DKiG. EK II signed by Wilhelm Marschall & EK I signed by Günther Lütjens...

Also shown is a small paper folder that the two EK citations were kept in.

    • 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.
