Major Hold has an impressive medal bar. It appears he's from a guard or grenadier regiment.

Here is another HOH3x winner. Not sure what the thingy is next to his EK1.... 


Hoh3x (wolfsbur - 203552314725).jpg

what the.jpg

A very strange thing , the man wears what looks like a Infantry Kunftigefriedens uniform , Field grey with red collar and brandenburg cuffs piped in white but with the Rank Insignias of a Oberleutnant in the Provisional Reichswehr , the stripes on the cuffs and the Shoulder cords or more properly achselschlinge , he too carries a Prussian officer Pickelhaube .

It is a rare photo of an Oberleutnant of the Vorläufige Reichswehr, the thingy is a FREIKORPS-badge, possibly Freikorps Faupel. But I wouldn´t vouch for it. It might also be a Freilorps-Formation from the former 5th Armeekorps (thanks Andy).

    • 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.
