If I can provide better photos or if you would like me to photograph any one specific, just let me know.

Very nice Mützenbands on this thread I guess that several of you gents have seen this before, but any way - here's my Scharnhorst display. Arne Håkon

Greetings Gentlemen,

I have been in search of the Destroyer Paul Jacobi naval tallie. I have a photo album from a sailor who was assigned to the Paul Jacobi. I would really like to obtain one of these tallies to help complete this display.

If you have one and are willing to sell, please contact me.

With regards,

I thought I would share some new tallies I have gotten since posting.

Seems like an interest in this area has been increasing. I just laid out over 500euro for the Graf Spee. This was a good deal I thought!

I still am looking/waiting for a chance at a some heavy cruisers and the Schlachtschiff tallies.

Have a long wait it seems. (sigh)

:)

I thought I would post my tallies of the two Linienschiff's I have. I am trying to learn how to use the scanner and program to be able to fit the entire tally in one scan. I did not fold the tally for the shot. I just placed it diagonally in the scanner to ensure I could get the most letters. I will continue to keep working on that so I can share full length scans.

Regards,

That is the most complete collection of tallies I have seen! How much would the Scharnhorst, Bismark, and Prinz Eugen go for? I am sure that Bismark is literally the pinnacle of this field and very very expensive

Hi Paul....Justin's got an amazing collection of these (and I'm after his Gneisenau :whistle:)....I doubt you'd ever find an original Prinz Eugen and the Bismarck's non-existent. At that point only "Kriegsmarine" tally's were worn.

Here's one I picked up a few days ago along with the postcard...any opinions appreciated.

KR...Peter

    • 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. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
