Chris,

I'm guessing that the Leiberring was a wartime thing and not given by the association in the postwar period. I recall seeing a Sterbebild with a mention of the ring.

The Ring is my dream... it was exclusively for people who had a certain amount of real combat time (I think it was 24 months? I forget... when i am back near my books I can look)... I would kill for an other ranks one, and kill twice for an officers one (Have not even seen a pic of the latter!!!)

Hi Andreas,

in the Leiber History it says

Für die Offiziere wurde der Ring in etwas andere Ausführung geschaffen. Der von professor Schegerle modellierte silberne Ring zeigt einen Löwenkopf. Innen ist der Ring vergoldet und trägt das Monogram ILR.

It seems it was for just under 60 officers.

Hello,

here is a postcard of the 100 aniversary of the Leibregiment.

The picture shows the uniforms of the beginning.

Look at the stamp, it is from the "Leiberverein Aschaffenburg".

Look at the guy to the left in the picture... He looks like a French Foreign Legion sapper with his beard, apron, and axe...

    • 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.
