Keith B,

With regard to your posts #141 & #142, I can?t help but wonder if the two pinback crosses are superimposed. They are both straight up and down, absolutely head on and there are no shadows on them.

We have seen examples of this being done in other photographs, usually with PlM?s. I do not mean this as criticism (it is not detracting); just a sort of technical point.

Best wishes,

Wild Card

Posted in the "Rolls" thread, my contribution to Reuss phaleristics:


Orders and decorations of the Principality of Reuss-Schleiz (Reuss j?ngere Linie) listed in the Amts- und Verordnungsblatt, 1915-1918

These are primarily civil decorations, although many are on the war ribbon, and one Lifesaving Medal was to a Flieger for saving the life of an NCO. Mostly awards of the various grades of the Honor Cross, the merit crosses and medals, plus 4 Lifesaving Medals, 3 Medals for Art and Science, and one with a really long name I can't remember right now (for females for war aid).

I also should be adding a supplement with non-Reuss decorations also gazetted in the Amts- und Verordnungsblatt. These are mainly from Mecklenburg-Schwerin, along with a few from Saxony, Bavaria and the other Thuringian states.

    • 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.
