A saxon Heinrich guy.


Unfortunately i have no pics with a ottoman flight badge, but these 2 guys with -i believe- ottoman uniform:

- Genmaj. Artur Bopp (wuertt.) pic was taken 1911 at the Euphrat region - in this time he was LtCol.

- Genmaj. Georg Bock von Wülfingen (saxon). pic was taken after 1918.

Carl Croneiß (born January 9, 1891 in Bad Durkheim , † July 31, 1973 in Nuremberg ) was a German military and Nazi politician.

"In the autumn of 1915 Croneiß was assigned to the German military mission in Constantinople . The following years of the war he spent as an aviator of the Ottoman flying force , first as imperial Ottoman captain of the Turkish Aviation Department Chernahevicz, later at the Feldfliegerabteilung 1 Dardanelles. In 1916 he became field flier department 2 Irac, Baghdadand Persia. In 1918 he became commander of the Turkish flying school San Stefano near Constantinople.

In 1919 his command in Turkey was lifted. He returned to Germany, where he was dismissed in 1920 in the rank of captain from the army. In the war Croneiß was awarded the Iron Cross of both classes, the Oldenburg Friedrich August Cross of both classes, the Knight's Cross of the Order of Albrecht with swords, the Hessian Medal of Honor , the Austrian Military Cross of Merit III. Class with swords, the Ottoman Imtiaz and Liakat Medals , the Mecidiye Order , the Iron Crescent , the Wound Badge awarded in black and the pilot's badge."

    • 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.
