Thanks for the info Dave :cheers:

2nd pattern Fallschrimjager, the initial issue had a diving eagle in the middle instead of the parachute

Terrific pieces Laurence, both in this post as well as the KVK's. :love::love: I only wish to high heaven that I'd not listened to others back in the day and had bought up all the 57's I could get my hands on! :speechless::banger:

But I'm certainly glad to see so much of it being shown here. Sure do hope some references start coming out on these 57's... it's high time. :rolleyes:

Anyhow just wanted to say thanks for the great show! Keep em coming! :jumping::cheers:

    • 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.
