This has caused a bit of a stir on another website.

During WW1, out of respect and honour the Red Baron was given a full military funeral by the British armed forces. RIP Major Nowotny.

I am outraged at the small mindedness of Mr Ellensohn. Maj. Nowotny was a hero in the eyes of his comrades and he is entitled to be buried in his country of birth. Hitler was born in Austria and it is happy to use it as a tourist tool! Why they use such a fatuous excuse to place Maj. Nowotny's remains in a pauper's grave is stupid.

This, btw, is history and I see no reason why the subject should not be discussed again if people wish to. I certainly didn't see it before.
