Live and learn or better yet - get advice from GMIC! :cool:

I bought this thinking it was a photo of Fuss-Artillerie kanonieren. However, GMIC'er and resident Imperial artillery expert Chip advised that there was no Fuss-Artillerie Nr. 75; so, who are these guys?

Doing a bit more digging on my own, I found that Infantrie Regiment Nr. 75 was from Bremen. This postcard was printed in Bremen (no other writing on back and not postally used).

The soldier front row, third from right clearly has "75" on his shoulder straps; I can see this with a magnifying lens. (I know it can't be seen from this poor digital image - Yes, Rick Research I hear you...Epson. :whistle:)

I have seen read that the shoulder strap for Inf-Regt Nr. 75 on a Dunkelblau should be "white with a red 75."

So... Could this be Infantrie-Regt. Bremen (1. Hanseatisches) Nr. 75? And wasn't this the only infantry regiment from Bremen?

So much to learn.... :blush:

Not every white prewar strap is from the foot artillery. More infantry regiments wore white than any other color.


Because they secretly wanted to be artillery?! :catjava:

Bwaaa haaa haaa Boonzaier! :lol:

    • 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.
