Hello everybody

I would like to show you a great collection of one of my friend who give me authorisation to show his collection of the "Schützen Regiment Nr. 108".

He is still interested by items from this unit. Don't hesitate to pm me and then I will give him information.

Thanks for sharing!  I usually don't have anything to contribute, but I do have a few items from SR 108.  There is a rifle (2nd Company, weapon nr. 3.) a small desk-top statue of veterans' rememberance, and some postcards.  One of the most interesting things (at least to me) is a small group of post cards sent by a member of SR 108 as a prisioner of the French.  The first card is dated Oct. 20, 1916 and the last card was sent July 24, 1919.  I didn't realize that the French refused to release prisioners for so long.  Thanks again for the post!

    • 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 .
