How do you like this very special medal bar from Brunswick?    

Another small contribution from my side... It´s the medalbar of Friedrich Metze, director of the Artilleriewerkstatt Lippstadt.

Well, I have nothing great to add to this brilliant (and I mean it!) thread, but I like my little group, directly from the family and almost "unused" as issued. Cheers

Gentlemen, sorry for stealing this thread, vbut I'm looking to add a brunswick cross to my humble collection. What do you think about this one?


detalis look good, but reverse inscription looks thicker than examples posted in this thread. Is this a known variant or copy?

Thank you in advance, Valter

Hi !

Thanks for comment !

Yes, now it is missing only a knight cross of the Heinrich des Lowen orden... Straube sales one recently, but I don't have the money at this time...

Along with the war merit cross there was the military merit cross which was established on 18 August 1914. Although it has been determined that 25 were produced in October of 1914, there does not seem to be any evidence of actual awards.

    • 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.
