Gentlemen,

I've really enjoyed reading this thread. The uniforms pictured, and the information about them, is outstanding. For years, KM was of passing interest and I only have a few tunics in my collection. Most of my uniforms are "out of their boxes" and hanging up but that doesn't make the one I am looking for any easier to find and often it is one of the ones that is still "in the box". Keep up the good work. You have rekindled my interest in KM uniforms.

Regards,

Gordon

Could you take a shot of the rather large wimple displayed. I have never seen one that large before.

Everyone has already said it. This is a magnificent collection.

Regards,

Very nice Uniforms guys!!!

Well here's mine, I jumped on it when his sea bag was picked up from the family, all his other items sold off and when I seen this once it was for sale I grabbed it due to the make up and who it was from, his name is Fritz Wohlleben, and served on... U13-U14-U48!! I love the slanted pockets, and his service in the Mine Sweeper Service.

He also earned the Kuban Sheld and his name is swen into it.

hope you like it.

Just wanted to show my green menace. It seems that's the same model. I bought it as a "coastal artillery" from a dealer. It's one of my most-loved pieces :-)

Kratzenberg career continued

Heinz Geissler was the first husband of my mother-in-law. She is still alive (at 92) and I would be interested in purchasing any item that belonged to Geissler, so that she can be "reunited" to her first husband. Could the owner(s) of such memorabilia - e.g. uniforms, pictures - kindly contact me at brunocova@paulhastings.com and let me know if he might be willing to sell.

Thank you and best regards,

Bruno Cova

Hello! My name is Kristian E. Hauter Jr. and your tunic caught my eye! Or rather the name did! Because I am currently in the process of buying Fritz Wohlleben's other tunic! I can't believe I found his other one. :) The tunic I am getting has gold NCO tress, is the same Green-Tropical color, and has loops for his Sub-Badge and Mine sweeper badge. His EKII ribbon is sewn through the second button hole and there is no Krim sheild because my tunic was worn by Wohlleben before it's awarding.

    • 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.
