If you get a cannon I'm gonna be pi$$'d!!!   I can't find a machine gun, motor, grenade launcher, etc anywhere and you have half an armory in your basement. 

Puts be much harder to locate that stuff over hear

Check out cemeteries and....places that make gravestones and similar monuments. I've come across several items that were not legally "dewated" such as sled mounted MG08, a German medium Minenwerfer on it's travelling mount, and several of the smaller versions that survived the WWII scrap drives.

They are out there....

As far I can read the document, the prootion is from march 13, 1917.

The date of 1919 will be just a post-war letter of confirmation.

Maybe he was a philatelist. There was a Felix Piensser in 1959:

He served in the Feldpost in 1939??? N° 27:

I´m not sure, if it´s the same one...

Old duffer? I'd prefer respected colleague, valued customer, knowledgeable collector.....but old duffer?! :cheeky:  Eric, if you wanted a photo, you just had to ask. :D

I learned my lesson long ago about chiming in on Chris's famous baiting threads. Now, I just watch and wait until he actually posts the item.

Did the lot include the EK I document?

    • 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.
