Some guys are very, very, very brave... and In the eye of the storm (25 June 1916 at Fleury for example) They get buried by shellfire, dig themselves out, then under heavy shellfire they dig their comrade out, then report to their CO and insist they are still fit for duty, go back into the battle to find the unit relieving then and guide that unit into position kinda Brave...

... and some of us are brave enough to buy a superb group... no matter what the hell the wife has to say 'bout it....

I was the 2nd kind of brave this week.....Mennacher21s.jpg.a21edcaec91abe6d285de8a6f80c3e44.jpgMennacher22.jpg.1d6c229ffde748cdb4b969248f403342.jpgMennacher23.jpg.93c51e0e65636e5b1edcf6c49edd4ea8.jpgmennacher10s.jpg.02028f9783e9b5e844380c4d120d56fc.jpgMennacher11s.jpg.c33b32bfba7bd73a2b8bad55344b232c.jpgMennacher12s.jpg.dbe4c6c6cf3325713b1a3331ed028de8.jpgMennacher13s.jpg.a4d26df8f980b0bcaa93eea11da496d6.jpgMennacher14s.jpg.edf0eedb5a34ef14f7fd6101fd844862.jpgMennacher15s.jpg.101caa00a156961a91754e51e1f5d3c4.jpgMennacher16s.jpg.eaf0d9d7b47518fe75bdfc8578afd06b.jpgMennacher17s.jpg.aa74cbed7a206dca38baf35695e4345b.jpgMennacher18s.jpg.f9170e188894e7aff36e3b74bfbbe53b.jpgMennacher19s.jpg.e821c8e0ca13dd2a4a13b19e9d51ed03.jpgMennacher20s.jpg.fdb7422d732271938629e1cad6700dd7.jpg

That is a really nice group! 

That is bravery that I can really respect.  Chris, your bravery is the kind I can personally understand.  :lol:

I luv the documents.  Is that a wound badge for actions in WWII?

HI,

nope, when Hitler came to power Uniforms and Medals became important and Interesting again... SA, NSFK, NSKK, Postmen, Firemen etc. etc. were all wearing medals again, something noone was interested in in the 15 years before that... so you see a lot of these 1930s wound badge docs for guys who were awarded the badge (or in some cases should have gotten it but had demobilised and could not be bothered to chase one down) and had no proof... so they applied for these docs confirming their entitlement top the wound badge...

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
