What ties did he have to the Leib-Grenadier-Regiment „König Friedrich Wilhelm III.“ (1. Brandenburgisches) Nr. 8?

Looking at it again I have to to admit its not Grenadier-Regiment Nr. 8, but Grenadier-Regiment „König Friedrich Wilhelm IV.“ (1. Pommersches) Nr. 2; sorry for that. Do You find a connection to this regiment? The litzen of both regiments look similiar.

Regarding foreign awards I can add to laurentius, that it was also common practice that, when foreign persons got an award, they got one class higher, than if it was a local person. That's why there are so many pictures with people having a foreign neck decoration, but no local one.

And comparing Wilhelm II with Tsar Ferdinand... hm... Wilhelm did always were his orders according to all the rules, while there are pictures of Ferdinand, where he's wearing so many collars, one could hardly see his uniform under it.

Oh yes, great, he commanded the II. Bataillon/Grenadier-Regiment „König Friedrich Wilhelm IV.“ (1. Pommersches) Nr. 2 in Stettin ... and Stettin would fit perfect to the picture, being it was made there. Thanks!!!

    • 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.
