Recommended Posts

Good Evening Everyone.....

I just obtained the documents and folder as shown below.......

The folder is Golden Leather, with Gilded Brass and Enamel Fittings.......

Dated - 29 April 1886

The title page reads:

Seiners Hochwohlgeboren

dem Herrn

K.K. General Intendanten



Intendanz - Chief

Des 15 Corps

I will let the photos speak for themselves.....

Question - What does the K.K. General Intendanten mean ??????

Thanks in advance.....

As wraith 42 wrote, some additional info: the pay-grade V., same as the Generalmajor. The employees of the quartermaster corps were military officials, not officers. They had no right to wear the sword-knot.

They had no right to wear the sword-knot.

Not according to the "Adjustirungs- und Ausrüstungs-Vorschrift für das k. k. Heer 1878", page 473 (Militär-Intendanturs-Beamte)

    • 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.
