    HJ shoulderboard with lyre for musicians, Bann 596

    Hi guys

    Just got this shoulderboard with the post today from Weitze. It is from Darin's collection, and I am very proud now to own just ONE thing from his former collection.

    It is a kind of unofficial board regarding the lyreinsignia, but I found a period pic in Wim's Handbook page 555, where I can se a similar board ( EVERY HJ-collector should own this book). It is also a good thing to know that it is from Darin - it is a "seal of approval".

    I am very happy with this new board to my collection, and I would share my delight with you.

    It's a great board. Don't rely soley on my endorsement of it though. It appears to have had the lyre on it for a long time and there are period photos of unauthorized devices attached to shoulder straps. I can't say for certain that it's period done but it is set into the strap pretty well so it's been on there for a long time. I liked this strap a lot in hand and was personally happy with it.

    Hi Darin

    Thanks for your comments, but I still believe, that you know a lot+ about HJ-boards

    When I got it in my hand, I also noticed, that it looks like the lyre has been there a very long time - there are marks of the lyre in the board. Because of these marks i.m.o. it must always have been on the board.

    I had a lot of stuff I could not include in the book, as it already was to heavy.
    I could have filled another 30 or more pages easily with triangles and shoulder-
    straps and such. I did prefer the handbook in two volumes, but that was not a
    possibility.
    Amongst the material I had available were two straps (pairs) also with the lyra-
    device and so you see orders were not at all obeyed. Of course surely not by boys
    in a sort of special formation. They liked to show-off!!

    Hi Wim

    I agree, it is heavy, BUT I must say that i.m.o. your book is not TO heavy, I would not miss ONE page from that book

    I would love to se pics of the straps mentioned in your post, but I realize that maybe you do not have them anymore:

    I do not know if I still do have them. They are in a box with cast off material,
    which contains 1,500 or more photographs. I have no time for looking in them!

    Here are 3 photos copied from Ebay showing the Lyra being utilized .

    Hi Wim

    I understand you very well - it would be like finding a needle in a haystack, and would take to much time - but I have the pic in your book, and that's evidence enough for me until now, thanks.

    Hi Joecool
