Regarding Kurt Lange, apparently they got the rank wrong. Then-Leutnant, later Generalmajor, Kurt Lange's father was Geheimer Justizrat Paul Lange in Deutsch Krone, later in Ballenstedt am Harz.

Hmm, and again it approves that no bar disapperars: Claudio's new bar has ben published in Nimmergut's book "Orden Europas" (1991) and is valued there with 3,000.- to 3,100.- Euro. Claudio, I hope you didn't pay more?! :shame::rolleyes:

Now comes me to mind that it came up even earlier at some Klenau auction, presumably in the late 70s or 80s. :love:

Edit:

back to topic, I don't think I've got any bar or document related to Hohenzollern that has not y e t been shown here, sorry ... :(

PS:

But if I remember correctly, I have not yet shown better pictures of this one:

    • 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.
