While watching the Lippe-Detmold war merit cross 1st class thread I remind on my Mecklenburg-Strelitz cross 1st class.

There are many mistakes about this cross and number of awards. But it is not my intention to start a discussion about this.

I love this breast crosses and I would like to see yours.

Regards

Alex

Hi,

the pin seems to be a little different? (Zimmermann's needle is flat). Could you post a straight picture of the back?

Another question: in the book by Henning Volle (Stiftungen und Erneurenungen von deutschen Ehrenzeichen im Ersten Weltkrieg, issued 2014) we cand find information, that Zimmermann took manufacturing of these crosses possibly no later than begining of 1918. So not all Zimmermann pieces are postwar.

Tomasz

I would have to agree with you it is like the type Homerjey posted and compared with my Mecklenburg Schwerin 1. Kl by Zimmermann I think it looks pretty good.

I was also reading this older thread from 2008..

    • 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
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
