Minen, L.J. is Landwehr-Infanterie-Regiment. German old text (Fette Fractur) used the same character for the "I" and "J". That is why you sometimes see Infanterie spelled Jnfanterie. I have done a Redux of my book, The Imperial German Regimental Marking, Where the book is primarily for the hand stamping of weapons, most practices overlapped with other markings on WWI German equipment and Militaria (like dog tags). I need to get an advertisement placed on this website. Peter Meinlschmidt's. German WW1 Identity Tags/Disks is well worth the effort to find. It was printed in 1993 and may prove a challenge if Peter does not still have a stash. I have not had any contact with him for may years.

Hello Jeff Noll,

Many thanks for your answer.

I have your book (N° 832 ;)) and I also have the book of Peter Meinlschmidt (in french).

This dog tag is for a marine soldier, so I'm not sure that "L.J." means "Landwehr Jnfanterie".

Best Regards,

Stephan

Hello Andreas!

The I.Ers.Komp./IX.AK was set-up in Altona. It came to the Ers.Btl./Res.Inf.Rgt.76. One platoon came to the Brig.Ers.Btl.Nr.33, and became later MG-Kp./Inf.Rgt.362

Hi,

Here is a Marine dog tag and another one of the same man but I don't know the meaning of "L.J." (do you have an idea ?).

Stephan

Hi Stephan!

Maybe this dog tag was used after the war for a Freikorps (L.J. = Landesjäger ?)

Minen, MY FACE IS RED! I just looked at the single photo and did not realize it was part of a grouping. Please forgive my false start. I have a ensemble from a sailor who served on Molke. Here is a photo. The oval colorized photo is of him also. His name was August Elske. I have many of his documents (few military) and his named stein (on roll-top between Collani and jumper) from Molke. Please excuse poor photo. Jeff

Hi Kornel,

really nice flag. Schleswig is a town about 30 km away from my hometown Rendsburg.

The Lauenburgisches Feld - Artillerie - Regiment No. 45 was based in Rendsburg.

But sorry, I´m a Holsteiner from the Geest. ;)

Regards

Andreas

    • 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.
