It came in this box, but i don?t know, if it really belonged to the Insingia inside.

Gerd,

This is the correct box for General officers boards and collar tabs. They were presented this way, and with the promotion document, at the ceremony where the General was officially promoted. They are rare. I bid on a set years ago but was not the successful bidder.

Regards,

Gordon

Unfortunately I have a particular weakness for NVA shoulder boards and I have hundreds, probably well over a 1,000 pairs with extras I've accumulated. Altough I don't really collect VOPO, rail and other non-miliary boards, I've accumulated a substantial collection of these as well.

Yet I still have several holes to fill, especially in Volksmarine and some of the Fahnrich school boards for some branches. Perhaps we should set up a collectors exchange for like minded East German shoulder board collectors who have spare sets just gathering dust.

An exchange would be a great idea. I have boxes of rare stuff(like the BG Marine straps).

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain.
