Thank you!  This veteran lives close to me. He has lost all his medals . I already have an original British war Medal unnamed and a original British 1939-45 Star unnamed. I want to chase up the other medals and have them court mounted for him as a gift!

Wow.  That is really nice.  Please post a photo of the final product before you send.  I know of a source for the collar insignia and chest badges if you are interested.  What was his rank?

This is the first one.  The rest you should know, right?

I am not completely sure about his rank yet. His grandson has send me some information including scans his Wehrmacht Soldbuch!!! And his British pay book!! He was captured in Monte Casino and somehow managed to joining the free Polish forces without much problems! he ended the war as a driver of a Sherman Tank in Africa! 

I would like more info about the source you mentioned!

    • 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.
