Looks as Ober Gneuss , Ober for Oberleutnant i suppose. the collar of his tunic is interesting . no Bavarian Borte , and appears as if he had retired a patch of the collar sides . Bavarian is ,the Lion buttons are clearly visible

Sure he's Bavarian? He is writing to Saarburg after all.

Good question... it is hard to tell as he is wearing an Überrock.... which in itself makes me think he must have been very at home in Bad Tolz.....

However, even google does not have a Schückinger?

HI!

It´s not Schückinger, it´s Oberleutnant Hermann Schützinger, born 23rd April 1888 Bayreuth. He is in Bad Tölz, probably in a Vereins-Lazarett, because he was severely wounded while with 11th Bavarian Infantry Regiment. He was slightly wounded again in March of 1917. He started the war as Lieutenant and left the Army before 1926 as Hauptmann.

Hi Chris,

"10.4.-30.4.20 Unruhen in Sachsen"

Thanks dave, I only recognised the "In" bit 😉

Ahhh... OK, has to do with the postscript to to the Kapp putsch.... "Als Reaktion auf den Kapp-Lüttwitz-Putsch bildeten sich in Sachsen, Thüringen und dem Ruhrgebiet während des Generalstreiks linksgerichtete Aufstandsbewegungen gegen die Weimarer Republik. So kontrollierte beispielsweise die "Rote Ruhrarmee" mit 50.000 Bewaffneten bis in den April 1920 weite Teile des Ruhrgebiets. Die revolutionären Aufstände wurden mit Hilfe von Reichswehr und Freikorps niedergeschlagen. "

    • 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.
