Hi, very nice pieces!

When the former captain of the 1st Emden, von Restorff  (23rd November 1911 - 24th May 1913), got his training as Seekadett he served under the former 1st officer and now retired Kontre-Admiral Sarnow on SMS Deutschland. I can offer a handwritten birthday-card from von Restorff to Sarnow on the occassion of the latter´s 80th birthday in 1930, on which he recalls "the good old days" together with another Seekadett by the name of Behncke, who also signed the card. In 1930 v. Restorff was himself a retired Kontre-Admiral.

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
