Good morning guys. I wanted to share an EK that got me as soon as I saw it. Knowing it was indeed pricy, I had a feeling I ought to take the chance to have it all the same. A lifetime keeper if you like. Overall conditions seems excelent and provided I cannot attend International Shows or visit my favorite dealers, I did not wanted to be outbid (so to say) on this particular variant. Delivery still pending, but would be nice to know how do you like it. I must say I never thought about becoming a sole EK collector, but this is my third one and a sweet taste it is... other imperial pick ups may start fading slowly :)

Thanks. Cheers,

That looks very nice.

DO think about collecting just EKs... women find EK collectors to be sexiest of all Militaria collectors!! I think a poll of over 70 000 women showed that.....

Hahahahaha....They obviously did not ask my EX-wife....

Nice cross!!!!

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
