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.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
