A very nice 1910 tunic for a General Staff major. It has the 1915 'Kolbenlitzen' tabs. Inside the cuff of one sleeve is a pocket. This tunic is almost exactly like the one on page 549 of Kraus' book. I tried many times to sell it a couple of years ago because I have this one and a super nice Majors Kleiner Rock and trousers. I'm glad I DIDN'T sell/trade it now. I've been foolish in the past and have sold many nice tunics, caps, spikes, orders, etc...

I need ot find a visor cap and a nice brocade or field belt for this tunic.

EKI NEEDED!!! :rolleyes:

Charles, I notice two nice ribbon bars on the tunics. Are they original to the piece or original bars? Could you post a pic of the front and back of each?

Both ribbon bars are original. I'll try to either post them here or find links to where they've been posted already.

Here's the proper schirmmutze for your tunic...

DAVE, you are alive! That's a super sharp visor. That's what I've been searching for these many years. That's the same for a ulan Rgt 14 or maybe Fragoon Rgt 12.

Charles:

Yes, this cap could also be used for UR 14, but for officers of DR 11 and 12, the band color would be more of a maroon shade and the band and piping would be in velvet.

Dave

It's hard for me to tell on the colors sometimes. Someday I shall find one for my collection. The search continuuuuueeess...

Here's a photo of a general and staff officer's. Not mine but from another post on the forum that I can no longer find.

    • 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.
