Hello all,

Jabnus, I have to say those are some impressive looking shields you have there! I've seen signs and stuff before but I've never seen these before, at least in someones collection. They are quite impressive and beautiful. What are the actual sizes of them? In the 3 ft or more range? Very nice.

Nice display you have there too.

Hello Bill,

Thank you for your kind words, the shields are roughly 67 cm by 85 cm, i can't measure them properly at the moment because my collection room is being rebuild and they are safely put away behind a door for now, sorry.. I don't know how big that is in ft?

The flag in the middle is exactly as big as a normal door. I'd say 2 meter by 60 cm aprox?

Over the years i have found only one other shield for sale (the same as the variation in the upper left), they are quit rare.

the display on the picture isn't permanent, i hope to show a picture in the future that looks exactly like the black and white picture shown in the same post, but it need's some more time. (still looking for some Schwester-uniforms ;-) )

    • 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.
