Cabinet Card with photograph of two soldiers the one on the right is the owner of the pipe. Length: 58” I do not know what Prussian unit this reservist belonged to other than 6/86.

Is a very impressive piece. I always marvel at how these have survived more than a hundred years without serious damage. Thanks for sharing. Kevin

Great example, Dick. "Parole Heimat" is not his name. It's a commonly seen phrase seen on steins, flasks & pipes which translates loosely to "Going Home"". Bob

He was a member of the Fuesilier Regiment "Koenigin" (Schleswig-Holsteinisches) Nr. 86 in Flensburg. What a UNIQUE piece of history, wow.

Thanks for the comments. I have a smaller named pipe that I will post.

Hi Bob,

I always thought Parole was a rank. Thanks for the information. I bought the pipe at a flea market years ago from the man's great granddaughter.She said somewhere she had a document with his photo and dates of service. I called her a number of times over the years but she never found the document. I assumed Heimat was his name so I never asked his name.

 

Proud Kraut,

Thank you very much for the information.
