The name was lightly engarved into the back, but the scratches made when repair was done almost erased the mans name and unit...jaeger2.jpgJaeger1.jpg

Hello Chris!

Nice pieces!!!  The commanding general of the X.Res.Korps was Gen.d.Inf. Magnus v. Eberhardt.

The MG-Scharfschützen-Abt.10 was formed november 1, 1916. I´m not sure, to which army it belonged at april 14, 1917.

5.3.17-6.4.17: 7th army

21.4.17-14.6.17: 1st army

The 1st company of that detachement was formed from the MG-Scharfschützen-Trupp Nr.73.

The 7th army fought until april 16, 1917 at the "Doppelschlacht an der Aisne und in der Champagne" and the 1st army since april 16, 1917.

Here is the map of april 16, 1917 of the X.Res.Korps (Gruppe Brimont) and it´s divisions.

Note the enemy west of Courcy. The 1st russian Brigade!!!

    • 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.
