    stalheim56, nice set of photographs, regarding the teaparty, they are from "Infanterie-Regt. Herzog Ferdinand von Braunschweig (8.Westfälisches) Nr.57 (Wesel) VII Armee Korps".
    Prost ! Steve.

    Stahlheim56,....no problem, these men are from " Infanterie-Regt. Hamburg (2.Hanseatisches) Nr.76 (Hamburg) VIII Armee Korps ". items/memorabilia relating to this and the other Hanseatic Regiments are quite rare.
    Prost ! Steve.
