If you go to the Eder See you can buy plastic models of anything that vaguely looks like a Lancaster, even Barbie with legs stretched and her feet up looks quite realistic. Seen the video of the Dambusters (auf Deutsch) for sale and various casettes where the band of the Plymouth Younger Farmers plays the march. And they're quite proud of their hole or the hole that is now of course patched but nicely Barnes Wallis bouncing bomb shaped.
Rick Wakeman related his tale of travelling to Germany in the 70's...he alleged all five members of the band donned WWII flying helmets for the duration of the journey and hummed 'Theme from the Dam-Busters" all the way over....then goosestepped off the plane all the way to the Customs shed...where they spent the next three hours in a small side room.....German Customs officers have even less sense of humour than British or US counterparts

You're right, but I believe that as an Englishman it is my duty to speak French like a cross between Peter Sellars and Del Boy, and to bastardize German at every opportunity.( Plus it's been 20 years since I learn't German, and have only used "Ein glas bier ,bitte" since. )
