My Flak-Artillerie badge is marked 6Sa. I also have two Jäger badges, one is grey, marked 7Sa, the other is green, marked 22Su. Judging by shades in my Tieste book, I gathered the right colour should be green, the grey one is identical to my Pioniere badge. Does this mean I got a Jäger badge that wasn't painted, as well as one that was? Or have I got a Pioniere badge that was mistakenly stamped Jäger?

I know resurrecting old threads is frowned upon, but this one has the history/context for my question... 

I have two, nearly identical plastic Luftwaffe "wavy" flags, both painted Flak red.  However, the reverse on one says Flakartillerie, and the other says Nachrichentruppe. In Post 28 of this thread, dj--joe also shows a Luftwaffe red "wavy" flag marked Nachrichentruppe;  but shouldn't a LW Nachrichen flag be painted brown like it's LW square flag counterpart in Post 34?

Anyone have the background on these seemingly identical wavy LW flags that are marked differently?

    • 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.
