Hi all,

I posted this one up a little while back, and recently had some very nice photos shown to me of this very banner in use.

First up, some shots of the Schellenbaum banner again...

Hi Chris,

It was once there, I believe the museum has re-located to Berlin, and from what I have heard, most of the items that were on display are

now stored away, and the museum is a shadow of what it was when it was at Uetersen.

Isnt Üterson where the Luftwaffe Museum is?

Bob. Thanks for sharing those wonderful photos. I really do appreciate the detail of the hand embroidered banners, like the one you have in the OP. They dont make things of that quality for the military anymore.

Thanks John.

I have actually just moved this one to Bill Shea (it was once in his personal collection), and has gone back home again !

I have another one which I will post some photos of shortly, slightly better condition than this one, and a rare unit designation.

Cheers

Bob

Hi John

My new Schellenbaum banner is now gracing my collection. I am very thankful to Bill Rannow in the US for allowing me to

be the new owner of this beauty, for Luftflotte 3...

I would love to see some close up of the embroidery word.  It looks to be an awesome item.  They are worth a LOT of money, but I cannot give you a good number... but close to 7,000-10,000 dollars?

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
