zhis pic has popped up on a few sites recently.... I think it is a Movie Theater photo?

Somehow it does not have the "look" of period photos, the guy looks a bit hefty, the rifle looks wrong, the Material (film and photo paper) also looks a bit more modern than WW1 era....

On top of that, the logo and writing at the bottom make it look as if a studios logo has been cut off ?


What do you guys think?

Are you picking up a German accent? :)

I reckon you're right, it looks like the sort of quality you see from 1950s/60s films and is the word 'produktion' in the bottom right corner?

hello all,


the photo shows Bayme Mohamed Husen! A former Askari. He fought together with his father for Lettow-Vorbeck in WW1

His father was KIA and Bayme Mohamed Husen was taken POW in 1917


The photo shows him as an acteur for the movie "Die Reiter von Deutsch-Ostafrika"!

Best regards

    • 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.
