Thought this may be of interest

, it is a framed and what seems to be a post war sevice document made out to a former Obersteurmann Heinrich Muller. It also contains a photo of him and his Naval Cap Eagle, it is signed by KL Otto Stoeffler of U-475 on which Heinrich served aboard between July 1943- April 45. As you can see Heinrich served on another Front-Uboot between Oct 41-Dec 42, as yet I have been unable to find which boat this is. All my efforts to find out this missing information have so far been unsuccessful, the most recent being a letter to the U-Boat archive I received a nice reply from Jak p. Mallman Showell who I later called and spoke to him about it.

The photo is not the best but it looks as if he is cleaning oil from his body, and I am not sure if that is a feather on the top of his back. Maybe a Neptune ceremony? Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers Stephen.

    • 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.
