Hello! I have a question about the following photos: this is a photo from my photo archive,


one of the graduates is my grandmother's older brother Michael Hrycaj, here is his personal photo (possibly from 1917):





And this is a photo from an Internet auction (I attach a link https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/114216171397?chn=ps)


- graduates are already different, and the year is probably also different, but the place is clearly the same. Question: what kind of "school" it can be and where. On the back of my photo, the sender also wrote that "he had already graduated from the officer's school" and is in Hohenstadt (I guess it was probably Zábřeh) and indicated the date of writing the letter - December 5, 1916. However, the question about the location of the photos is open.

And, I would also be grateful for the identification of rank, type of troops, awards (if possible, of course).

    • 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.
