Diamonds Maker ?

Lets keep this cordial, and avoid gloating. This has been accepted by everyone up until now... including you ;-)

Korrekt, Chris.

But I don't purport to be an expert on the Knight's Cross.

I posted this as an education for everyone .............. not to gloat.

I have made mistakes in my books in the past and have admitted my errors.

Some others portray themselves as infallible.

That's the issue.

Anyway, another learning point for all concerned.

No names, no pack drill. :)

well Chris and all others.

I found out about these threads very late and didn't understand it

as I am not in to 1939 items at all .

and I was surprised about the conclusions in the beginning as well as the outcome

want to say ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

its not bad at all ,,,,just a learning experience that should tell us

that a firm logo presented not automatically means it was used as stamp .

al do in the list ,,,,,,,obvious silver stamps are pictured ,,, ( that is the confusion part off these lists )

and the details off these logo's indeed matter,,,,,,,,,,,, and can be Moore then just one story .

its to sad do that some colleges using the opportunity to use strong blaming and degrading words

in a case that is just an misjudgement off data

what is a perfectly human and logical thing

as this kind off data is not present on the internet anywhere so ...

it is logic

we all have to learn how careful we have to analyse these things to be sure .

and not getting carry'' d away by enthusiasm to much ,

a valuable lesson fore future presentations

as there is more in the barrel ..and we are all equals in the same boat .

regards kay ,,,( and thanks )

That is the whole thing in a nutshell....

The Logo and the stamp do not need to correspond... and just matching the companys initials to the stamp on a ring can go pretty wrong as well.

This list is a great find, but it is raw data that needs careful interpretation.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
