Would the forum members please check my attempt and make corrections where necessary.

On 27.04.45 the enemy was in the area southwest of the City of Dolna Ligoda. With up to 2 Battalions of soldiers supporting their tanks and self-propelled guns, they repeatedly attempted to counterattack Comrade Vtorushins position. As head of battery, Guard Lieutenant Vtorushin insured straight and accurate return fire from his guns. When the enemy tanks and self-propelled guns were within 300 meters of his position Comrade Vtorushin opened fire destroying 1 enemy tank and self-propelled gun. Comrade Vtorushin?s straight and accurate aiming of his artillery also thwarted the enemy infantry?s impact on his position. With enemy forces exhausted , our infantry overran and eliminated their position and captured the City of Chavisov.

    • 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.
