The photo made me remember of my Bavarian Oma who once said to me that many Junker Families were a sort of Pepiniere of Officers

Good morning,

Werner von Alvensleben.





Phantastic, Glenn, thank you! According to the Familie von Alvensleben he received the RAO1mE on his "Abschied" ... ist that possible?

the award was not published in the Militär-Wochenblatt but on checking the Ordensliste of 1877, one finds that a Generalleutnant von Alvensleben (then residing in Potsdam) was awarded the RAO1E on 8 May 1869; the same day that Werner retired. So, it seems the answer is yes.

    • 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.
