Unknown German Soldier - photo


Recommended Posts

I somehow became the owner of this lovely photograph, I do not collect such items but thought the members of this thread may like to see it. I assume it is an in memoriam card of some description but is not the usual type as it is a card cabinet photo.

I hope it is of interest

Hello!

Lindau i.B. means Lindau in Bayern (Bavaria)

In Lindau was the staff, the I. and the III.Bataillon of bavarian 20th Infantry Regiment.

He wears the Bluse M15 with white piped shoulder straps = infantry

His tunic doesn't appear to be a M1915 Feldbluse, it has 1915 straps though.

You are absolutely right. My fault. I just saw the shoulder stripes. So he wears a 07/10 tunic with M15 shoulder boards.

Thanks for the correction! I wrote it sunday, 7am, with a little headache...:rolleyes:

    • 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.
