If anyone here lives in MUC and would take a photo of the house he lived in for me :-))))

The best image available online is from above at Google maps. I bet the church bells were loud!

If I recall correctly, slotted dog tags first appeared in 1916, so I assume that your wonderful example dates from 1915 or earlier.

Is there any available literature on German tags?

Very nice stuff, indeed. However, I don't see why he attributes the Sturmbataillon tag to Rohr's unit. It could be any 5th company.

As much as I would love him to be wrong, I think he is right on that. 1) Its a pionier and this desgnation was mainly just Rohr men 2) It seems to be from the time when Rohr was still the only battalion 3) I am not sure but I tink Rohr was the only one with 5 Kompagnies?

    • 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.
