Hi All ,

I would firstly just like to say a big thank you to Nick the Chairman for giving post war German awards a chance here on this excellent website .

I,m looking forward to seeing the excellent 1957 awards you guys have and posting pictures of my own awards .

Hopefully this will become a regular thing and we can all learn a little more about this grey area of Germany,s post war awards , East and West !!

Cheers !! :cheers:

Is this intended just for the de-Nazified Third Reich awards, or is it wider? Grant, you suggest that DDR might be welcome too. Am I correct? I had thought the discussion that led up to the forum focused on BRD and especially TR remakes. Don't want to go where I'm not welcome, you know . . . . :beer:

If it is part of the scope here, I can put up some DDR things, but . . . . :unsure:

Hi Ed ,

To be honest i,m not sure !

I should think both east and west and the now united federal german awards would be welcome on this forum .

I focus on 1957 west german awards and i,m starting to spread into federal german awards but i know that east german awards have their own fans .

They were all a result of germany being split up after the war and all have their places in her history .

I have no problem with east german awards being shown here but i,m not the boss so i,ll leave that to the bigger boys to decide ! :blush:

Whilst this forum came from the initial demand for a venue to cover "1957" awards, it is indeed intended as a home for all post 45 German awards, be they 57 versions of TR awards, awards of the BRD or awards of the DDR.

I know we have members who have some fine examples of the Bundesverdienstkreuz and I hope we see some of the nice quality early examples of these as well as Communist DDR awards.

    • 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.
