Thanks for posting that great portrait. I like the sonderfuhrer style shoulder boards. IT looks as if he were a pilot,which would have given him a light blue waffenfarbe.

Oldulf,

Thank you for sharing these photos with us. Do you know anything about Lt Strauss and his involvement later, during the war? I wonder if the significant scars on his face were due to WW1 participation?

Alas Paul, no context....

According to the authentic tekst on the back of the photo, the family lived in Danzig.

Danzig, between 1919 and 1939 was an independent City-State (with much German resentment), but little coherent information has been published about the Danzig connetions with the NSDAP and preparations for the re-unifiction with the Reich.

As Larry observed, he must have been a university student, with a preference for the noble sport of swords. The family name is to common for identification....

The scars are no signs of a sport but of being member of a "Schlagende Verbindung", of which there were many in Germany during that time, and there are still some today. They are student associations. The duells were not part of a sporting activity, but a matter of honor and a ritual of "belonging" to a certain circle of academia. These duells were called Mensur (singular) and were highly ritualised and often bloody as can be seen on a photo from my collection taken in 1927 after such an event with all involved.

I know, and my words "the noble sport of swords" in the context were with ironical intend

    • 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.
