Recommended Posts

hi guys,

just dug out some of my hard to come by real grave photos and postcards.not souviner types

i know in ww2 there were tons of pics taken by the troops to remember there buddys who have fallen and where there grave markers were at.

but it seems in ww1 there are fewer and harder to come by in ww1 pics. i know ive been looking for over 10 years and have about only 50 good ones.

so was wondering if any one else have any to share. ill post as many as i can get good shots of, so enjoy and you are welcome to post yours or your thoughts on scarceness of these types of photos.

thxs joe

Another soldier killed in the war, Gefreiter Karl Ohler from Bavarian 5th Inf Rgt , killed in May 1916 by a minebomb, near the village Liebercourt in northern France.

here is some of his comrades at the grave.

He was awarded EK II in 1915 and was only 23 years old when he was killed.

    • 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.
