Hello Stefan.

Thanks for showing this concerning Gen.d.Inf. L. Wolf. Very interesting to because of his command of 22.Inf.Div. later ( # 695-697) in which a relative served throughout the war. Anyone who has seen photos of him after the severe wound he suffered, must be wondering how he survived.

​Nice photo, Deruelle. What is the medal, please, and why is he wearing the badge hanging from a bow rather than a normal medal ribbon? I would normally associate bows with medals awarded to women.

I´m sure these medals and the way he´s wearing it are some sort of Krieger-Vereins-Abzeichen, maybe "Verein Jäger und Schützen". Their "Vereinsuniform" were nearly identical to their military counterpart.

​Thank you, Stefan. So not 'official' at all.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
