Just discovered this nice topic, where I can contribute something, I got some time ago.

Although the document for war merit cross for heroic deeds Lippe-Detmold is in a quite poor condition,
I still like it very much.

Fritz Kleineges was Wachtmeister der Haubitzen-Batterie des Sturmbat. Rohr and got this war merit cross
for defeating an incoming attack. He was wounded twice, but survived the war.

A few of his awards also survived....only the IC 2nd class was missing (I got everything directly from the family).

I take this opportunity to post here my postcard on the SturmBataillon 5 Rohr quite well known but really nice in postcard format even if it is a French card made with the negative found by the Americans. A wex squad in Argonne : 1 team leader 1 support 2 lance operator and 2 tank carrier I think. I bought this card this summer it was simply titled Trench in Argonne. I think that even if the sight is known the fact that it is in postcard format in photo quality allows it to still have an interesting value when we see the prices reached by the products related to the SB5 if anyone 'one has seen selling prices do not hesitate to tell me because I hesitate to sell it. As I am a student my postcard budget is tight and I do not particularly care about this one. Thank you for your feedback.

Thought this was lost in the mail, but finally arrived. The front shows Pierrepont which was right near their base at Beuveille and has a nice early Sturm-Batl stamp.

    • 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.
