Just received this fantastic little find for my BDIII list, which contains two ID tags to the same soldier with different cities--from the famous Garnison location of Ingolstadt as well as the city of my family. Josef Birnkammer, 24.2.1889, Ers. Abteilung, bay. 6. Feld Artillerie Regt. One is for the city of Ingolstadt (2 Ers. Battr.) and the other for Freising (Garnison Battr.) Each tag has its original cord. The backs are blank

The 10cm x 18cm striped bag is marked distinctively specific to the Bavarian BDIII, kb III Armeekorps Bekleidungs  Depot, with 1915 date and Hersteller code.

Showing here one that I am told is a WWI Erkennungsmarke (aka: "Hundemarke") as issued to one Emil Kanzler, born 12.8.92 in Neudorf.Elbing.  If I read this correctly, he belonged to Reserve Infantry Regiment 210 as a member of the 2nd Machine-Gun Company 219.  The tag was already broken in two  when I received it.DSCN6319.thumb.JPG.c38b5c89d1ddc3727616b26eb351ca0b.JPGDSCN6320.thumb.JPG.56066ee5e53263bc4111c9b4bca95a8f.JPG

My new favorite. 1st Ersatz Batallion of Mecklenburgische Jäger-Bataillon Nr. 14 and then to Radfahrer-Kompanie 54 which was part of the 54th Infantry Division. Found a likely match on the verlustlisten for a Johann Tomforde of the Radfahrer-Battalion 5 who was lightly wounded September 23rd 1916. Radfahrer-Battalion 5 included elements of JB14, RK54, and JB6.

    • 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.
