Hello Gentlemen,

I have some photos from the second and post-war period that belong to General Matzky. Some have German subtitles that I can't read. Perhaps you can help me to read and identify as people portrayed in the photos.

Soon I will update with the photos of the second war

Thanks.

Hello,the first photo says that is a visit to the Ist Belgian Army Corps in Cologne . the Corp was previously the Belgian Force of Occupation In Germany because the British shared their Zone with Belgians. The name of the Belgian General to the left of the photo appears to be Gierst .

Hi,

as promised, i will post the photos of the second war i promised. There are some since the time of the first war and after.

I am struggling a lot to try to translate what is written behind them. I have had some success with some of them.

There is also a letter and a document from your child.

I appreciate any help from you, if you can give it to me. Anyway, I share the images for you to take a look

    • 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.
