The Old Man and Fatty themselves

Coming back from a foraging expedition a week after liberation, we found the Russians rounding up SS men in a large wood. There were five SS men. Two were promptly shot before us & the remaining three were being beaten up. Having stripped them and turned out their pockets the Russians shot them too. This picture came out of one of their pockets. It is an authentic snap since the serial number stamp appears on the back. The rest of the boys refused to walk home with me in case, on being stopped & searched we should be suspected of being pro-Nazi by any slow witted Russian soldier!
