A lot going on in this photo:

The band is wearing spiked pickelhauben, but the band leader is wearing an artillery ball pickelhauben.

There is a jager shako on the left side of the procession.

On the right side of the street are a couple sanitatsdienst.

In the foreground is what appears to be a Landwehr gefreiter.

Unfortunately, the award pillow is difficult to make out. Under magnification I can make out that there is what appears to be an aviator's badge on the left, an EK1 on the right; the medal bar center bottom has four medals - the first appears to be the EK2, the second is definately another cross and then two others. The neck decoration center top doesn't look like the PiM; the ribbon appears to be a dark center stripe with light side stripes.

I know that doesn't help very much and the scan isn't that good; it's another one to strain the eyes. :whistle:

    • 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.
