Appears to be a well worn tunic . but unusual are the Swedish cuffs and the absence of the breast pockets. apart from that the buttons looks bright as if they were those of the peacetime tunic for Saxon Generals.

Hi Graham, thanks for your kind word.

You have got two very nice crosses. Congrats. The most difficult will be to find boxes to go with them.

Beautiful Komtur.

Thanks Chuck and Christophe, yes the boxes are far more difficult to find.

Lastly my Cross of Honor:

@Graham : you have another nice medal, congrats.

@Komtur : You are lucky to have the Kielmansegg medal bar. It is strange that the SA3a he received on 24 May 1909 is not on his medal bar. I don't know why he never received the SH3 or SA2BX.

I like the old SV3aX

Wow great medal bar! I wonder why it is arranged this way, shouldn't the iron cross be on the first place, than the saxonian and then the war merit cross from Brunswick be in the 3rd place? Bu a real beauty. Congratulations on this one!

Hello

Recently I have bought this nice card. Here is Leutnant d. R. Walther Kleeberg from IR 134.

He received the

SH3 on 8 December 1916

SV3bX after May 1918 (not on the Roth's book)

SA3bX on 30 November 1915

HE3X on 2 May 1918

With that photos a new SV3bX is discovered. Now there is 1882 Saxon officers who received it.

you can see that Kleeberg choose to wear the HE3X ahead the iron cross 2nd class against the rule. The photo has been taken in 1921

    • 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. 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
