Interesting! ;-)

So they can't tell that back them the Germans were all racists... Interesting it is also his medal bar with a Russian medal in the end and a 1st model Bavarian MVK without flames. That would be a nice bar to have in my collection... ;-)



PS: could a moderator edit my title and cancel the word in the end "alias"... thanks!

this was his father... http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_Sabac_el_Cher

in the end of the text it says that:

Am 21. September 1885 verstarb Sabac el Cher in Berlin. Das Kirchenbuch nennt Magenkrebs als Todesursache. Sein Grab auf dem Friedhof der Dreifaltigkeitsgemeinde existiert heute nicht mehr. Seine Ehefrau Anna, 42-jährig und verwitwet, heiratete kein zweites Mal. Sein Sohn Gustav (1868-1934) wurde im Deutschen Kaiserreich ein berühmter Militärmusiker und Medienstar. Bis heute leben Nachfahren des „kleinen nubischen Jungen“ in Deutschland.

August Sabac el Cher war einer der ersten gesellschaftlich integrierten Afrodeutschen in Berlin. In der Geschichte der afrikanischen Diaspora in Deutschland kommt ihm somit besondere Bedeutung zu. Seine Lebensgeschichte zeichnet das Bild eines preußischen Patrioten, der aus dem Schatten seines Dienstherrn jedoch nie heraustreten konnte. Seit 2006 findet eine posthume Würdigung seines bewegten Lebens statt, die zahlreiche Veröffentlichungen über Afrodeutsche und ein Werk über die Familie Sabac el Cher mit sich brachte.

    • 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.
