Learning the hard way...


Recommended Posts

Happy to post the following.... have had it for some time, but I did some extra research and an pleased with the new write up.

Te 89th Division, specifically the 354th Regiment twice lost large amounts of men to mustard gas by occupying areas under enemy fire.

After the war it was pointed out they did not need to occupy it. They could have kept the enemy out by gassing it themselves....

Nice WW1 heart!

I've only collected a few WW1 hearts, and no gas woundings or deaths (that I've found). I've had a few British Commonwealth et al Stars/Star Groupings with a gas victim, but nothing from here in the states.

Hi,

there is a good chance that this was also a gas woundings...

    • 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.
