WWII mix with repair job on the iron cross ribbon. Could this have had wiederholungsspange? Or could it just have simply been damaged on the Russian front and field repaired...

nothing fancy or extravagant, but it has a waldeck ribbon and i like it!

 a large 1914 cast bronze medal by medallist anita lehzen depicting the upcoming great thrashing that germany is about to unload on the multi-headed hydra with animal heads representing the members of the entente; the russian bear is already down, while the gallic rooster and english bulldog are both about to get sliced and diced...

...while on the reverse a lyric from 'die wacht am rhein"----everybody's favorite patriotic german anthem. those pesky frenchies!

    • 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.
