Yeah, I think they play on Tuesday, vs Brasil.
A pity Neymar is so badly injured right now - I hope he will recover from that.

Best of luck as half of the European offering.

I heard a curious turn of phrase on the news yesterday. Neymar had "broken a vertebrae in his spine."

From British General Staff to all Commanders in the Field:

Army Order 204, dated 6 July 1916:

The following distinctions in dress will be worn on the service dress jacket by all officers and soldiers who have been wounded in any of the campaigns since 4th August, 1914:

Strips of gold Russia braid, No.1, two inches in length, sewn perpendicularly on the left sleeve of the jacket to mark each occasion on which wounded. In the case of officers, the lower end of the first strip of gold braid will be immediately above the upper point of the flap on cuff. Warrant officers, non-commissioned officers and men will wear the gold braid on the left sleeve, the lower edge of the braid to be three inches from the bottom of the sleeve. The additional strips of gold braid, marking each subsequent occasion on which wounded, will be placed on either side of the original one at half-inch interval. Gold braid and sewings will be obtained free on indent from the Army Ordnance Department; the sewing on will be carried out regimentally without expense to the public.



Pursuant to above order the following individuals are hereby presented the Wounded Stripe:















Your King and Country thank you for your sacrifice and faithful service.

Great, Lou - thank you!
For all who didn't know yet: RAF_Louvert is the "One-Man_Medals-&-Awards committee"
for King George, the French High Command, and even for the Kaiser!
He has a deep-founded knowledge about all the awards, medals and badges, and we will be
in good hands there.

If anyone sees achievements which demand an award, but doesn't see it in the chart yet -
there will always be the next chart; the mills of bureaucracy grind slow.

For Neymar they say he needs 4 weeks rest, so he will take some holidays and will be back in September in Barcelona. Other good thing for Germany, Thiago Silva will be out because of his second yellow card (and a stupid one !)

Well, it gives the Brasilians at least some good reasons, if they should loose the match.

Such high praise and so early on a Sunday morning, I'm good for the week now! smile2

Olham, you are more than welcome and thank you for hosting this most excellent campaign.

To your point about achievements deserving of mention, I would add that if anyone is aware of such achievements please let me know. Just send me the particulars of the event and I will look into it. I try to keep tabs on everyone's records but I am only one man after all and I have been known to miss things of import. Just ask my wife.

We better leave your wife out of that, I guess (you wouldn't want to put your reputation
at risk here, right? Mmuahahahahaaa!!!)
But sure - it is damn easy to overlook something, or to make a mistake somewhere.
You are on the road a lot workwise, and so it is all quite busy for you as it is.

I bet the fellers will immediately make a BIG noise, if something should be overlooked,
and then there is still time to start the "mills of bureaucracy" again.

Excellent work as always, Lou! I really appreciate your and everybody else's efforts to make this DID campaign an enjoyable experience. (If only my Abteilung wouldn't be wiped out so often...) smile

The Germans will have to wait until March 3, 1918 for their own wound decoration. On that date the Kaiser authorized a so-called Verwundetenabzeichen (Wound Badge) in three classes: black, silver and gold. The navy got their own wound badge, Marineverwundetenabzeichen, in similar three classes on June 24, 1918. It was only awarded to men who were wounded in naval battles, and because the German navy didn't fight too many of those in the final months of 1918 (with the exception of the U-boats), the navy wound badges are quite rare compared to the army ones.

Here's a photo showing all three classes of the army wound badge in my collection:



The badge in black was awarded for being wounded once or twice, the silver badge for those wounded three or four times, or for the loss of a hand, foot or an eye or hearing (also partial), or for severe facial injuries or brain damage. The rarest badge, the one in gold, was awarded for being wounded five or more times, or for total loss of eyesight or manhood or severe brain damage.

Carrick, I never bet, but I had made tips for the outcomes, and so far they have been pretty good.

Hasse, you seem to have a fine collection, like RAF_Louvert.
He had pointed that out to me some days ago, that we Germans can't have these before 1918.
I guess I will get shot down 200 times until then...

I must say this is a nice place to come to, and a fine community - just a totally relaxed
Sunday afternoon thought. yep

Hasse, those are very nice old badges Sir. Glad to see they have found a home with someone who appreciates their true value.

Thanks guys. And don't worry about not being able to get a Verwundetenabzeichen in a while, Olham. I hear there are plenty of Hlzernes Kreuzes available, and it's quite easy to get one of those. biggrin
