Hope these two pieces will give a clear idea about "Meiji shade" and "Showa shade".

But the real highlight of our today broadcasting will be this very interesting piece from Meiji epoch.

The box

Looks like Paul’s group of four to Private Kawamura Manjiro (looks like he get his 8th class for Tsingtao operation at the start of the WWI (?), but I don’t know the exact date ;)) from WWI has same type of order (I wonder what kind of reverse inscription this order has).

Off the topic of the thread but, this is a GREAT bar for a gent who was at the Tsingtau campaign (August - November 7th, 1914).

    • 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.
