Imperial German Military "Parole Heimat" Flask-This interesting memento has a lot going for it. It is glass, with a metal outer skin. There is a leather lanyard held by rings around the circumference. One side has the number "69" in large metal ciphers. There are metal pips on each side of the numbers. It was for a member of Infantry Regiment 7, Reserve Horn Border, 11 Comp. The dates 1899 and 1901 are also seen. There are numerous sayings on the flask. The reverse has a heart cut out with the phrase "Kümmel mit Rum, zwei Jahre sind um" which give us an idea of what this was used for (Caraway with rum!). Originally there was some sort of snifter or small cup that was included but it is gone. There are a few small cracks in the glass. Very good condition overall!
