There's a book called 'By tank into Normandy' about the experiences of a young British tank officer. He includes an unpublished piece by his unit Padre who took responsibility for looking after fatalities. He felt that no active tanker should have to see the aftermath.
'The Man Who Worked On Sundays' by the Rev. Leslie Skinner I believe was the book.I have a vague memory from a post on another thread that there is a book by that Padre and he also took on the responsibility for burying German tankers. Whilst doing so on one occasion he looked up from his labours to see he was being watched by the crew of a German tank who saluted him before departing. I can't begin to imagine the horrors he must have seen in removing the bodies from a destroyed tank.
Is this the infamous camo that triggered a rash of friendly fire incidents on account that looking like an SS member
wasn't as good an idea as initially thought?
Top Hat Ally (even if he is a POW)
The top hat and cigar thing was popular in the first round already: http://www.europeana1914-1918.eu/en/contributions/1189.These are French Colonial troops probably taken POW by German troops in 1940; the bowler and top hat were probably imposed by the Master's Race as III Reich propaganda always insisted it was a shame that France pretended to defend "Western civilisation" with "Untermensch" from the colonies. Putting "civilised" hats on Senegalese Tirailleurs probably meant something in the Propaganda codes of the 1000 years' Reich...
