Hi,

Would love to hear some thoughts on this one,a bit battered and bruised to say the least.It has very similar characteristics to the one in Gordon's book, hinge pin and repaired clip. The measurements are also bang on.

Cheers.

Thanks Gordon, even though it looks a bit beat up it still retains great quality compared with my GWL badge.

It came to me via a well known auction site, accompanied with a very nice Frenca wristwatch stamped D.U.

In time honoured fashion,the story being that they were taken from an officer for a packet of tabs. Luckily for me the seller gave no indication of a U-Boat badge in his auction description. I have tried to get a clearer image of it.

Cheers Stephen.

    • 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.
