Yes, both very nice. I am still looking for a NC bar with a "simple" RAO3 on it.

I am looking since years. But i cannot find one.

I only have KO3, KO4 and RAO4 ones.

There´s nearly nothing of  prussian decorations , which Mr. T hasn`t got.😜

Yes, they are scarce too. I was lucky and found one, when I started collecting medal bars years ago. Unfortunately without a name.

Also a nice one - mir würde schon eine mit RAO3 ausreichen.

I think he was a higher official - Beamter im höheren Dienst - in a higher authority like a Oberegierungsrat, Direktor, Geheimrat or

something in that way. I have worked through the Siekmann 1917 and the HDR18 and Intendanturliste 1929 several times - and i had luck to find some

possible recipients of some of my bars. But that`s a lot of work. I did a lot of markings for finding EK2w recipients better.

One of the problems is, that lower decorations like Centenar, KDM70, Chinamedal.... are often not listed - or sometimes i could prove

with Papiernachlässe, that not all informations are correct. (for example with Ministerialbürodirektor Rettig, Rechnungshof DR, or Ministerialamtmann Reimann)

This time in the corners of the net there`s a interesting bar - but it is too expensive as i think.

I could find the recipient because of one striking decoration he had.

A Zahlmeister. And i could find more infos with old Adressbücher.

One more mystery solved.  Übung macht den Meister.

Nur kein Moos ansetzen (Das Boot)

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
