Hi,

It's not the Kaiser. It is possible for you to make a focus of the shoulderboard. With this we can see if it is the Oberst of the unit or a General.

Nice photo :jumping:

Ahhh - I was given it's the kaiser, but really, I'm missing his orders like the grand cross of the iron cross... so who was the commanding officer of the IR11 (I think the 11 stands for IR11)?

Picture will follow ASAP

Thanks for Info!

You may get a more accurate identification from the ciphers on the soldier's shoulder straps. Could be Grenadier Rgt 11 or RIR 11 or....

I'd say he's an Oberst with every inch of his boards covered by the cipher and pips.

Can't quite make out the storefront signs as to language.

Another clue is that he's going for a full gloved handshake-- the All Highest and v Hindenburg used to sort of barely touch their gloved fingertips to the calloused paws of The Lower Orders.

    • 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.
