Want to give this tread some new life:

GIBRALTAR title on feldgrau tunic

Note on one picture he is a Feldwebel and on the other he is promoted to Feldwebel-Leutnant of FR73

Hi !

I would say he has promoted to "Offizierstellvertreter" and not Feldwebel-Leutnant.

Nope, its a skull. I guess he must have been attached to the regiment or battalion.

Hello:

With the onset of trench warfare plus considerable losses of horses due to sickness a number of officers transferred to the air service and the infantry or served on detached service as Chris mentioned.

Ernst Juenger's battalion commander at one time was a "Rittmeister"

Chris: thanks for showing these pictures because I am very partial to formations from my old province of Hanover

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
