Dear fellow collectors,

In the pinned House Order of Hohenzollern thread @Mattyboy was able to give another name to add to the list, being Lt Karl Plauth. Wikipedia credits him with 17 confirmed aerial victories. It also says he preferred his opponents to get out alive. I was wondering what his awards were, apart from the HoHx and the EK? Here is the link to the discussion in question:

Kind regards and thanks in advance, Laurentius

Hi

In  the Franck's above the line book, there is nothing else. He was killed in November 1917. He probably received the Bavarian Military Merit Order 4th class with X like he was born in Munich (Bavaria). It is a assumption. He received the Pilot badge and Ehrenbecher. That's all we have for the moment

He was wounded in Verdun (1914/15) and again on 13 July 1918, so maybe Verwundetenabzeichen (Schwarz)? I think he belonged to the Prussian Army, not Bavarian Army.

Hm killed in 1917 and again wounded in July 1918, are you sure that you talk about the same person?

Leutnant der Reserve Karl Plauth (1896--1927), 1920 Oberleutnant der Reserve ...?!

As said Deruelle said that he was killed in 1917, so it could be a typo and he died in 1927, then it would make sence. That's why I am asking.

    • 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.
