Well worth the effort to display them in this fashion. They have some substance now and take up the space they deserve. Right good choice of pictures as well. Nice one.

Very nice display sir! What are those rings for?

Hi,

 

the one on the left is an ultra rare item (I know, a term used very often in the hobby), it is the Officers Ring for Bavarian Leib Regiment, for 24 Months in the front line. The second is a Leib Regt commercial Ring for soldiers serving/or who had served in the regt and the one on the right is the Other ranks ring for 24 Months on the front.

The officers ring is not pictured in this article, but here is an article about the Leiberring...

Thanks :-)

Yeah, I tried a few possibilities, but rings are very hard to display indeed.... they look like nothing... or like very little.... it is only by displaying them like this that someone looking at them thinks "well, they must be something special if displayed like that!"

    • 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.
