Hi gentlemen!

A very nice pic of Ernst Bernhard von Uechtritz u.Steinkirch. Is this the same von Uechtritz u.Steinkirch who was Kommandant of Tr. ?bpl. Sennelager from 1932 - 1933?

Many thanks for any help,

the commandant of Truppen?bungsplatz Senne was Oberstleutnant Heinz v. Uechtritz und Steinkirch. If memory serves me right, the unfortunate colonel accidentally drowned in a pond in Sennelager camp.

Regards from Sennelager

#166 is driving me crazy--

the ONLY regimental officer I can find with PLM, OK1, AND MK1 was Otto Karl Hans Freiherr von Brandenstein (1865-1945) who was in Hessian Life Dragoons Regiment 23 in 1914 (with LITZEN), Pour le Merite 15.5.18 as the cavalry brigade commander in Finland... Generalmajor 18.10.18 and char Generalleutnant aD as a PLM holder on Tannenbergtag in 1939.

But no collar Litzen! :banger:

Nobody else! :banger:

Hi Christophe,

Many thanks for posting the pic of Roeder - he has been a very elusive character. He is one of the "Tannenberg" generals who received a promotion to char.General der Infanterie on 27 Aug 1939 on the 25th anniversary of the Battle of Tannenberg.

Best regards,

    • 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.
