General Tinnie Database


Recommended Posts

As part of the ongoing projects being considered here at GMIC I would like to start to create a tinnie database. Tinnies are still a relatively cheap collecting item and are something which I have been steadily collecting over the years.

However as we all realise there are thousands of variants and cataloguing or collecting them all is next to an impossible task. Tieste has probably come as close as anyone has been able to creating a comprehensive catalogue but I have at times found even his great work lacking.

To that end I will lay down a challenge and ask that within this thread we start posting pictures and information on tinnies. Please post here with the understanding that at some point in the near future I will start to collate the information and photos and put it into a catalogue format that will be available to all members.

Sorry to those of you that have already posted in another thread but as this is for a project I thought it best to highlight requirements first.

All tinnies, day badges, WHW, Police & Wehrmacht Badges etc are welcome.

Are you up to the challenge.......... :rolleyes:

A subject not often seen. War Dogs. James, I am not sure whether we are supposed to comment here or not. I feel lucky that you are sharing some of your incredibly rare tinnies. Would anyone know the breed of the canine depicted? Appears a little thin to be a German Shepard. Thank You James. Please delete this post if necessary. Robert

    • 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.
