Bought a mixed paper convolute at the flea-market last weekend. One piece is a membership certificate for Freikorps Konrad Henlein. I must admit, I'd never hear of this Freikorp group before. Known also as Sudetendeutsche Freikorp and Sudetendeutsche Legion. I've high hopes this piece may be rare and valuable, it was chiefly the reason I bought the convolute. I wonder do members have any pictures of the insignia they wore or indeed any information would be welcome.

Secondly, there was a small Gebirgsjäger's convolute in the mix, a citation to a soldier with the Gebirgsjäger Regt. 99 presenting him with the remembrance medal commemorating Austrian anschluss with Germany. Belonging to the same soldier is a German nationality pass for use only in inland, this pass is also new to me, do members perhaps know anything about this type of pass?

Lastly in the convolute were two NSDAP weekly slogans flyers one from Hitler, one from Goebbels. A couple of small things that I'll tuck away in my collection.

Regards

That is a nice grouping of documents. Documents of any kind from the TR period are almost impossible to find over here on the West Coast of Canada! Not many made the trip across the Atlantic I suppose. Very good find!

Hello;

Who signed the Sudatenland citation? I think I have seen his signature before I but I don't know who it is.

    • 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.
