Well, I could never match Eitze's stellar collection, but I'll offer up my sole Waldeck award (a buck short and about 6 mos. late, as usual).

Hello Gaffken,

what an impressive cross :love:

And with only 16 (!!!) awarded pieces a first class rarity !!

I`ll show my Honour Cross with Swords bar, which was original posted in another thread.

But I think here`s the correct place for all Waldeck stuff ;)

greetings

This time only paper :D

I was able to get this book:

"Offizier-Stammliste des k?nigl. Preu?ischen Infanterie-Regiments von Wittich (3. Kurhessisches) Nr. 83: 1866-1903"

This is the Waldeck Home Regiment and it give the biographies of all 316 active and retired Officers of the Regiment up to 1903.

You can see in the appendix, that many of them were awarded different classes of the "Waldeck Verdienstkreuz" :jumping:

greetings

Hello,

I want to show you a postcard of the "boss", which I obtained this week.

On his neck he`s wearing the Waldeck Military Merit Cross 1. class and the ordensspange is a pre WW-1 piece.

A new 3-er Ordensspange which I got via epay.

I have to replace the wrong medal from Reuss with the correct Waldeck Silberne Verdienstmedaille mit Schwertern.

Nice worn ribbons with swords :)

Hello Herr General,

thank you for posting the document :jumping:

It would be nice if you could post a bigger picture, if the delivery has arrived. Those docs are rare!

    • 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.
