Bert Trautman dies aged 89

Indeed. How many people have been awarded the Iron Cross AND an MBE?!
I remember reading in an old copy of "Soldier" magazine that German civil employee of the British forces in Berlin had received an EKII at the end of the fighting for Berlin as a 16 year old and had been made an MBE just before retiring at the end of the 80s.
Seems like he was quite the character

Making it to 89 with all that 'excitement' in WWII is pure win.
