and here is one of my favorites.

The bar of Generalleutnant Johannes Zukertort.

REALLY NICE! I can see why this is one of your favorites. Thank you for showing it Dete!

On the ribbon bar, what is #11?

...unusual combination of the Friedrich-August-Medal of with the Austrian War Medal.

Very unusual! Good you now show it here, too, after we discussed it yet on German SDA forum. Maybe someone here has an idea?!

My best guesses were the following two: A born Saxon who went to war with Austria as a mercenary (totally not unusual in mid 19th century), or a native Austrian who later went to live in the kingdom of Saxony. Due to precence and bar style I don't think this would have been worn by a Austrian in Austria.

    • 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.
