A mystery that I hope folks can help me to resolve

Recommended Posts

So maybe its my innate desire to acquire weird stuff but I do appreciate everyone's help in my prior identification. This is a group of items that I recently purchased for my own collection. The lot consists of:

1) A post WW2 miniature chain consisting of an Eastern Front medal, War Merit Second with swords, War Merit First with Swords, Iron Cross Second (1939), black wound badge, Infantry Assault Badge, Kurland shield, Demjask shield.

2) Two stickpins--both post War--32nd Infantry Division and 122nd Infantry Division 

3) Copy of Greif Rundbrief-December 1975--for veterans of the 122nd Infantry Division 

4) Photocopy of an image of four German soldiers with text on the reverse.


I have little faith that I can identify this fellow but would be incredibly grateful for any opinions that folks could offer to us. 








Happy New Year to everyone and thanks in advance for any help in solving this mystery!

Well I guess it will be close to impossible to identify any of these soldiers on your photo, the text itself reads as following:

"Shortly after arrival at the old unit, this photo has been taken. It shows the rest of the regiments staff after the evacuation of the "Finger-Emplacement" the night before.

Photo K. Küster"

This regiment was part of the battle of Narva in 1944 more to be found here: Battle for Narva Bridgehead 

Maybe it helps a little bit.

    • 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.
