Hello Gentlemen! I received this bar from a fellow in Western Australia around 4 years ago and have been slowly but surely sourcing the correct awards to bring it back to life....

First came the easiest of the 3 - the 1870 medal, then the Saxe-Altenburg medal....and just last week from Christian (thanks mate!) came the 1870 EK2.

So here is is, back to its original form:

Thanks for the comments guys...4 years was a long time but it certainly paid off in the end. Only one more bar to complete, then its off to the frame makers to have all my pre-1914 bars put into a nice display case. Then I can start on all the other incomplete projects I have sitting in my to-do box - i'm up to around 6 bars now waiting on their medals!

all the best

Jas

    • 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.
