A kind of bar...the low budget version.... :whistle:


Oooof... but that just goes to show, many people, especially outside of germany fail to realise that not the whole country was full of rich city dwellers... many simple soldiers were rather poor once they went back to work on the farm, in the factory..

Not everyone could afford a tailor made bar to wear once a year....

Another Photo from the same group as above , here we have a man from Flieger troopen :cheers:
He has a propeller and number 1 on his shoulderboard.

BUT look at the woman at his side ohmy.gif What is it on her head ??????
Old hat I know - sorry - I believe the unusual ladies hat is known as a Flugelhaube, a regional headdress from the Landkreis Schaumburg area, Lower saxony. Helps to place where the photo/medals resided at one time ...

Beautifull medalbar pegasus1831, a shame the medals are no longer present. I especially like the Austrian awards on the bar, from which you can see the Austrian connection to the regiment. If I'm not mistaken the 5th and the last medal are austrian? The 5th is a order of the iron crown for sure. A lovely bar to have

Kind regards, Laurentius

    • 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.
