Hello,

@ Simon : " Signed by Erich Z?hr, RK, DKiG. " => exactly !!!!!

And funny thing on Major Erich Z?hr is => he never seemed to have received the Honour Goblet ?

DKiG : 19.03.1942 - as a Hauptmann

KC : 23.12.1942 - as a Major

The KC was awarded for the efforts of the KGzbV 172 in Russia during the hard winter months january towards mid 1942.

And now lets break our heads over the unit mix up :P

Cordial greetings,

Document for the wound badge in silver to Feldwebel Walter Moeck of 9. Kompanie, Fallschirmj?ger-Ersatz- und Ausbildungsregiment 3.

He was last wounded while fighting as part of Kampfgruppe Kratzert in the Metz area in September 1944. His ground combat badge document can be seen in the relevant thread. He finished the war with Fallschirmj?ger-Regiment 58.

Hello,

Here is a ratehr mixed one, the soldier Uffz. B (still alive today - 95 years old) was a trained glider pilot who did see quite some action. I did get this document togheter with a few otehr documents in 2005 directly from the former soldier.

When the glider units where disbanded in september 1944 he was attached as a volunteer towards the F.B.D. :speechless1: where he was wounded on 01.04.1945.

So a Luftwaffe soldier with a Heer unit.

Cordial greetings,

    • 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.
