Hi Morten,

the right name for Führerboot des B.d.M. is: Befehlshaber der Minensuchboote (minesweeper), not Befehlshaber der Marine.

Photo is from early 1934.

My pleasure. Here is another contribution. Kriegsmarinedienstelle Stettin tally. This is from a small photo lot of a reunion of WW1 ex-U-Boat crew. The ceremony was held aboard U-43. Cheers,

Such a book has been produced "DIE MÜTZENBÄNDER DER DEUTSCHEN MARINE / 1815-1918 / Königlich Preussische Marine - Norddeutsche Bundesmarine - Kaiserliche Marine", by Bernd Wedeking & Markus Bodeux

Dear Gents I want to refresh this thread posting my few KM pics with tallies on wear,may be any was is posted before but may be has gone when closed some platform to upload images Happy to s

Posted Images

I posted it in # 449.
Other cap ribbons with Führerboot and other inscriptions (post 453) do not exist. They were higher ranking departments without their own cap ribbons. There is only the Cap ribbons Füherboot des F.d.M. and Schulflottille des B.S.O. and B.S.N.

Those are in my collection.

Küstenschutz Danzig tally was only hand-made in a few pieces. This tally comes from the estate of the commander of the battleship Schleswig-Holstein, which opened the Second World War with the bombardment of the Westerplatte near Danzig.
After the conquest of Danzig, the ribbon was given honorary the later Vice Admiral Thiele.

Unfortunately, I do not own a photo for this. The one shown here is from the book by Josef Zienert:
Our Marineuniform, Hamburg 1960

Hello Smadding,
Thank you for your posts that raise the thread to a higher level. Our hobby needs more that contributes and therefore we learn more. Have understood that there are + 400 different Mützenbands and think this thread here on GMIC is one of them better. Just that the thread is alive with the activity for this is the best refferance.

Cheers, Morten.

Hi Morten and all,

originally I did not want to set tallies and photos here. I planned the continuation of the book about 
the Tallies of the Imperial Navy (Reichs- und Kriegsmarine 1919 - 1939). Due to various 
circumstances I have refrained from it. So I can now share my material and knowledge here.
English is for me a foreign language. I ask you to take this into account. Questions are always 
welcome. I will try to answer them according to my possibilities. 
Are photos of the Vorläufige Reichsmarine 1919 - 1921 and Reichsmarine also welcome?

Bernd

Hi Smadding,
Nice to hear that you can post more from your collection here at GMIC. You also decided to write a book about Kriegsmarine in Norway and would not show too many of my pictures in here but he that I would write with has begun to Write a book with another Norwegian collector so now I can show more pictures from my collection. For me too, English is a foreign language. It's a fairly new thread on GMIC Kaiserliche navy / Imperial German Navy tallies in wear that you probably have photos for Sharing!



Cheers, Morten.

    • 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.
