Hi together,

First: I wish you a happy, healthy New Year 2021.

Second:

I found an old thread about GFM Model and his bar here in the forum.

As some of you know, i also collect pics and postcards (photo cards) of military personel of the German Army.

I few days ago,  i could get the shown card.  The seller didn`t know the name of that guy.

Imo the card shows the later GFM Walter Model - here as a Hauptmann of the Reichswehr. If i am right, the AGFA sign on the back signs to me,

that the photo was taken in around 1923.  I cannot produce a better result with my scanner.

The shown bar shows a frosty framed EK (and bigger sized -  produced after 1918) as you can see on "his" bar of the old thread.  I am nearly sure to see the damage of the  6 o`clock crossarm of his MVO4X  - what i also can see is, the early thin swords of the MVO. - so my personal opinion is, that  Paul`s bar definitely belonged to him.  In the mid of 1930s (after the Wehrmacht was "founded") the LSC`s  were added to the shown bar.

My pic was also shown in the book of the old thread.

Best.

great photo and I am 100 % certain, that this shows the young Model. When I was serving in the German Bundeswehr we had an Oberstleutnant Kirschbaum and he wore a monokel as well. For me as a young Fahnenjunker it was pretty amazing, it had the touch of old noblese at this time. 

Long time ago!

    • 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.
