Now a rare photo of Liman von Sanders.

Wild Card. Pfor the photos on post 124, the photo of Mulzer may be taken before he received the MJ3. Don't forget he received it in September, the 6th 1916. This is not THE explanation but only one.For me, the Bavarians were very proud to wear their high order like Max Joseph so if he received it, I think, he probably wore it.

Regards

Christophe

Yes Christophe, you are correct. He was awarded the PlM on July 8th, so there is a two month ?window? between the two. Of course the MJO was back dated to coincide with the PlM award; but that would not have changed anything with regard to the picture. I think that I have become a little paranoid about superimposed PlM?s. :blush:

Best wishes,

Wild Card

what did he do to get it awarded?!!

He was one of a total of eight flying observers to be given this award. One set of rolls indicates his award was approved but not awarded before his death. Obviously he didn't wear it in life, and any photos of him wearing it were redone after his death.

    • 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.
