Here is a simple wooden chair from the Deutsche Luftwaffe.

This chair stands more than 60 years in the basement of my grandfathers house.

Near my hometown (a small village in the southwest from hamburg) was a Blohm & Voss airplanefactory and a small airport. Hundred of these chairs stand in the factory canteen...

After the war the civil people use those chairs as firewood...

My grandfather took one for his little workshop in the basement.

I knew these simple chair for all the years...

but it was a lucky concident that i found the Luftwaffe stamp on the underside ...

Hello Sir,

Interesting chair that brings back some memories. Back in 1968 I visited a Monestary in southern Barvaria that had been occupied by Wehrmacht Troops. To my surprise, each of the very simple wooden chairs in the dining area and hat/coat racks sported a National Emblem stamped on the back. What was more interesting, the plates that were used on a daily basis were also Wehrmacht marked.

Nice chair.

    • 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.
