As it is the only one I have Gents, I wonder if it is a good example?

I don’t mind a couple of moth holes!

any thoughts or opinions welcome as always Gents

Hi Both

Many thanks for your thoughts and the info...

i do hope they ‘belong’ together, having been together for 100+ years, that was the attraction for me.  For now at least, I’ll treat them as such...!

i’d rather post my stuff and ask about it here than google search it. It must seem lazy sometimes when the answer is ‘obvious’ but when you gents have questions too I don’t feel so bad!

So thanks again

best wishes

tony

Even on the Fiedgray uniform? This strap looks like a slip on for the 1907/10 but I may be wrong.

Often the case.  However, Bavarian infantry was also red.

Tony, my approach usually is to research as much as I can about an object before asking questions in a post here on GMIC.  So, I will at least see what I can find with Google before posting questions.  Doing the research yourself is part of the fun.  That said, Google searches can be tricky things and take some practice (at least in my opinion) to get the phrases that return the best results.  Of course, frequently the "experts" here on GMIC do not need to search for an answer as they have the resources readily to hand; in many cases, those resources are print books or years of experience that Google just can't replicate.

Good evening IrishGunner!

at 01.57 Welsh time I decided to see what time it was for you by checking your location and the answer was 02.01 and I’m telling you this at 02.06(?).....

i’m not The quickest but that’s not the problem cos I am keen!

I really appreciate your reply. I hoped for one like yours...

21.14am

if I write a considerably long reply, pouring my heart out ish will you reply because if I did then I’d be gutted if you didn’t acknowledge it!

Shall I go for it...?

regards

tony

apologies...  I had a few too many last night!

No worries! :beer:

Your photo of Batterie Wilhelm II is actually a very well known naval gun: 30.5 cm SK L/50 gun.  Mostly mounted on warships, there were a few mounted as coastal defense.  This particular battery was to defend the port of Zeebrugge.  These were manned by Matrosen Artillerie Regiments.  A nice photo.

I believe it was only pre war that the Bavarian Infanterie straps were red, then they switched to feldgrau straps. With the introduction of the M1915/16 straps for the Feldbluse, Feldartillerie used the red straps but with yellow bomb and numbers.

    • 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.
