Here's a picture I found somewhere. An unknown LW Major with HHOX, WF and Meiningen.

Hi Daniel, Here are my bar with the HHOx. The first one is marked 938 on the lower arm. The second one is marked W 938 on the lower arm. The Third is marked als 938 on the lower arm. Ciao, Claud

Hi Daniel I have found may be one another Saxon officer who received the HOH3X. Found in the Riesaer Tagesblatt of 4 november 1918 It's the best I can do, sorry Christophe

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:

Old Erich, back again! Not Hessen, though, but Oldenburg - and an Oldenburg Peter Friedrich Ludwig.

The Ottoman was a mistake, too. Fixed both, now correct? Marianercross is unlikely, anything else possible on this ribbon #12? Thanks in advance ... :lol:

    • 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
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
