As I'm sure alot of you already know a German Signature Database was set up approximately 7 months ago ( http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/forum/268-germany-signature-database/ ). Since then it has had over 420 seperate entries, and even more if those that have been posted in the 'Unknown' sections are taken into account. The accumulated 'Views' for the section as a whole runs into the many thousands and this has all been down to the generosity of members sharing what they have and to who I would like to express a big Thank You.

As a constant work in progress there is always room for more so if anyone has an original signature in their collection that they know the identity of be it on a citation, in a soldbuch or a book dedication etc, it is from the relevant period and you are happy to share then your additions are very much welcome, be they a well known official or a lowly Kompanie-Chef.

The Guidelines give an indication of what is (and is not) required and also shows how to sort the database in alphabetical order for those that are unaware of how to do so, and following a suggestion from a fellow member there is also a Master Index so you can see at a simple glance who is already in the database. As always, suggestions are always welcome.

Thank you.

Time for another big thank you to everyone that has ever contributed to the Germany All Eras: Signature Database over the last 7 years, from established members to the very latest newcomers. This weekend we hit the incredible figure of 900 individual names entered (some of whom have multiple examples of their signatures in their entry) which proves just how generous the members are in providing the time and effort to add what they have. Every single addition has been a positive benefit both to the database and the forum and long may it continue.

Once again, thank you one and all.

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
