Three Soldiers

Catalog No. 1363

Stoneware, transfer, 1.0L or 0.5L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Wie war es bei dem Militär früher gar so familiär,
Man nannt sich traulich du und du,
und ging dann nach dem Wirtshaus zu.”

(How informal it used to be in the military,
one called each other you and you,
and afterwards walked towards the tavern.)

To fully appriciate the message being conveyed, an understanding of German usage of the personal pronoun “you” is required. The term “du” in the second line of the text is the familiar form of “you”. The formal “sie” is generally viewed as more appropriate for military interactions.

Price Range (either size): $75-$100
