Recommended Posts

Please help to identify as many persons as possible on these photos that I got recently.

No.1 Official visit of Austrian-Hungarian Emperor Karl to the South-Western front. Any ideas who is the general accompanying Emperor? His awards are: Oesterreichischen Ordens der Eisernen Krone, Militaer-Maria Theresien-Orden, Militaerverdienstkreuz and Prussian EK-II.

No.2 No idea who is here :banger: Please help to identify any of these persons!

I assume here we have a visit of Ludwig von Bayern to Austria. At least he wears Orden vom Goldenen Vlies (neck award), Golden Jubilaeumshofmedaille, Militaer-Maria Theresien-Orden (breast star), Militaerverdienstkreuz (breast star) and ungarischen St. Stephan-Orden. These awards are visible on the next photo with the same person.

Fragment with an unknown and high decorated Feldmarschalleutnant. Among the awards - Orden vom Goldenen Vlies (neck award), Oesterreichischen Ordens der Eisernen Krone (breast star), etc. etc. According to the awards he is wearing he should be a kind a relative to the Austrian Emperor  :rolleyes:

This is indeed the Bavarian King Ludwig III. Although I often confuse him with his father, Prince Liute Pod.

This obese old man, I think he is like Grand Duke Friedrich, but obviously not. His appearance rate is quite high. In my eyes, Europeans look the same.

It is not EH Friedrich but Generaladjutant Prinz Zdenko Lobkowitz.

    • 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.
