Hi Chris:

... durch die Gruppe Jeperen, Gen.Kdo. Gardekorps

The Gruppe Jeperen was also called Gruppe Ueperen or Gruppe Ypern. From 10.9.17-23.10.18 it was the same as the Gardekorps

Hello Chris.

Here is what I read :

Ueber Ihren freundlichen Gruss habe ich mich sehr gefreut. Hoffentlich geht es Ihnen recht gut im schoenen Driburg ( ? ). Ihre hervorragenden Leistungen als Stosstruppfuehrer der Leibkompanie bleiben mir unvergesslich.

Sie war schon ein ganzer Mann ( ? ) !

Semper Talis

Stets Ihr alter einstiger Btl.Komd.

Franz von ??

Cannot read the last name,

Bernhard H. Holst

Thanks Guys! Does anyone know if there were any Postcards of Stephano from the Freikorps or SA days?

Here is another one, am I right reading a Streifschuss on the left temple?



Stephani was Gauleiter of Stahlhelmbund Gross-Berlin. Here's a shot of him speaking at a rally and another (he's on the left) with Rittmeister Morozowicz.566df6512cbf1_Bundesarchiv_Bild_102-11411185758.jpg.fb50dbdd776df239d24c8185d1e0

    • 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.
