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

    • 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.
