Oberfeldwebel Lebrecht Klatschen has won the Golden Grenadier Painting Competition, taking 34% of the votes cast!!! I've just received the breaking news from the administrator of the contest.
Thanks to all of you who cast your votes for the Oberfeldwebel. He'll enjoy an extra large stein of Turkish coffee and a clay pipe of the best Virginia tobacco with his junior N.C.O.'s at their favorite haunt, 'Der Andere Schuh' (the other shoe) this evening. Once the e-certificate arrives in the Grand Duchy of Stollen, I'll share it here. Thank you again, and a hearty thank you also to the other painters who partook in the contest. Their entries and painting skills are certainly also noteworthy. Well done men!
