Leutnant of Hussar Regiment Nr. 19 (Thanks to Chip for the help)

A very nice salty set of boards ? I like how it shows the progression from Lt. to Oberleutnant - he wore those boards for a long time (explains the condition). A lot of "been there" history in these shoulder boards. :cheers:

Thanks for your comments,

- Naxos : you are right about the shoulderboards, the history of this officer might be interesting. H?las, the seller didn't have the name :violent:

- Rick : now I have to find a good ribbon bar with Trio Saxon ribbons and a good ribbon of Saxe Meiningen :rolleyes: (if you know someone who are ready to sell one, don't hesitate to remember me ). NOw you know all my hobbies.

- Sandro : you are right about the rarity of this belt. It's the first time I see one like this in this condition. Like I am fond of Feldbinde, I need one for my collection.

- Charles : when I find a Saxon ribbon bar I don't hesitate a second. Sometimes I am frightened about ribbon bars, but when I have them in hands I can clearly see they are originals. The most important of course.

    • 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.
