Chap I mentioned in the above post,tells me of his capture,as stated, bullet through leg, lying helpless he is happened upon by three German Soldiers,they look at him,he understands enough German and body language to figure two of them want to shoot him and be on their way,the third puts up a argument,they get their ciggies out for a smoke, before doing the deed so he scrabbles in his breast pocket and pulls out a packet of Senior Service which he offers em.,"
"Ah der Englander cigarette! das is gut, Tommy for you zer var is over"
they cature him instead of just shooting him, so smoking was very good for his health.
