Herr Kapitan

By BarbaraR
Hi all,
The final upload of my WWII characters from the 1940's w/e
held at Sledmere House this summer.
Here's a rather handsome / scary German officer.
He wasn't into smiling !
Many thanks for all the nice comments and the clicks for my
last upload of the Home Guard chap.
Onto something different next .. hmm.

Having just finished (re) reading "Sophie's Choice" I wish to throw a rock at this character ( or something worse) Excellent character shot!

Ahh. Well I read they were introduced in 1935 but not widely manufactured until
post war.

He is scary but where did a WWII German soldier find a filter-tipped cigarette? Wikipedia tells me that was pretty much a British thing from 1935 to 1954. Hmmm -- was this guy perhaps a spy -- or maybe a time traveler.
Ooops -- I just noticed that this topic was already covered in previous comments.

I wish I'd cloned the cigarette to all white now Sad
