Thanks Morten.

Odulf,

Thank you for sharing those wonderfully rare photographs. I love seeing things like this. They had some very attractive looking uniforms.

Very rare and awesome photographs. Thank you both for sharing. The WW1 U-Boat veteran image is super cool. I wonder how he earned the '39 clasp for his EK2? He must have been in the regular military as well? The NCO level photograph is really nice as well. You guys have some phenominal pics! Are there more?

Hi Paul,

You start some really nice threads and I often find myself looking through my collection for something to contribute.

How about something similar like Werkschutz (factory/plant protection police). I have a nice portrait that I can contribute.

Cheers,

Larry

That is a righteous photo. I love that medal bar. Nice SA Sports Badge.

Thanks Paul. :)

How about this old gentleman proudly posing for the camera.

Gotta love his goatee and moustache.

He wears a Luftschutz cap and insignia, sanitats armband, Sicherheits-u. Hilfsdienst armband, he wears a Weimar-era Red Cross belt and buckle.

His boots are the type seen in 1920s-30s photos. I know nothing about his tunic.

Cheers,

Larry

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
