Hello! Heres is Korps Kühne, an overview of my collection and an article I wrote for the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Heereskunde   Verbandsabzeichen.pdf

"What part of Kappenabzeichen did you not understand!?"

Schrippen  is Berlin dialect.  Here it's called Brötchen.  I'll have a Wurst for lunch today. ..☺

I know Schrippen is Berliner. I was being posh for a Prussian's benefit! :cheers:  (At least I didn't say Semmel ;) )

I am having Linseneintopf mit Wiener Würstchen (made by my very own Hausfrau).  Unfortunately, no echte Brötchen, Schrippen, or even a Flesserl in the area.

Because of the design I am very happy to add the 22. Schützen Div. tinnie, which has a Bavarian button as a shield for a medieval warrior. The unit fought as part of the German 14th Army, which was in Italy from inception to the end of the war. The Austrian I. Korps and Bavarian III Korps were part of the 14. Armee, so I would venture the 22. Schützen Div. was influenced by Bavarians in the sector. My question; is it likely this was worn by Bavarian/German troops?

Hello Fritz!

A brilliant photo!!!!!!

What´s the first badge of the cap of the man first row, 5th from right, please?

Bayr. 8. Res. Div. Reviewing again, seems just one XXI Korps may be present, but many have Heeresfront Erzherzog Carl.

I wonder why the 10th Bavarian Div badge is so much more difficult to find than the others :-(

Super pic Fritz!!!!

Thanks, Chris! I proudly own one, but yes, photographic evidence is tough as well. 

Andy, I think it is just the turn of the badge as pinned. Cropped in on the detail:

Greetings Everyone,

        This grouping including German uniform buttons just sold on eBay. Since several of the Kappenabzeichen shown are identified as being worn by Germans (check marked), what is the likelihood of some of the others also being worn? Andy, I expect you may have some ideas. :)

    • 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.
