I hope that you don?t mind minis.

Chances of seeing a full size first class Brunswick Women?s Merit Cross, only nine were awarded, are extremely rare. So we will have to settle for the little sister.

She is kind of cute though, isn?t she?

A Roll exists for the Sachsen-Meiningen "Orden" f?r Frauen und Jungfrauen in der Kriegsf?rsorge (1915-1918) but unfortunately all that survived to be passed on to me was the first page-- all of whom are Princesses.

Oddly enough a single woman received the men's Meiningen Kreuz f?r Verdienst im Kriege am Nichtk?mpferband-- Frl. Anna Prehn, Secretary of the National Foundation for Next Of Kin of Those Killed in the War, Berlin-Charlottenburg.

The complete Rolls for Lippe-Detmold's Bertha Orden, Frauenverdienstkreuz, and Frauenverdienstmedaille will be included when the Detmold Rolls are published later this year as part of our ongoing transcription of rolls from the Seymour circle.

Whoever got either of the latter two Lippe women's awards from the Eric Ludvigsen collection (Thies' 30. Auktion 15. Juli 2006, Lose 132 and 133) was very very lucky indeed. I doubt any of us will ever see others.

Now I know we have some Arts & Sciences awards here for ladies....

    • 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.
