I had a postcard of a memorial that I put somewhere "safe" and now I can't find it!  The memorial was a large, naturally shaped rock with a soldier's figure sort of draped on top.  The inscription read something like "I am not dead, if you remember me."  The memorial was surrounded by evergreens in the near background.  And I think it was for an infanterie regiment.  I've done internet searches combining all of the various words that I can think of and found lots of great memorials, but not that one.  All help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Where was this memorial located or what region. Was the inscription in English or in German or maybe even french or latin. Was it on a hill or valley or in an town. What kind of evergreens? I think we need everything you can possibly remember to make any guess as to what you are looking for.

Since you kept the postcard "safe" it must have specific value to you and so there must be more to the card that could help locate the memorial on it.

    • 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 .
