Alfred Meyer-Waldeck got the comanders cross 2nd class of the Order Henry the Lion 1910 during a world tour of Herzogregent Johann Albrecht, while he was visiting Qingdao (Tsingtau for us Germans). Truppel got the cross 1st class on the same trip from the duke regent. 

While some local people got awards from the duke regent in Bangkok, Tokio and Russia, no local chinese got any decorations from Brunswick on this world tour. But down to the honor medals and merit crosses nearly all classes of the order of Henry the Lion were awarded in Tsingtau to Germans.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.

    • 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
