Last one for today

… probably.

Razor has a great collection of newspaper cuttings, here’s a taster:

Mrs Irene Graham of Thorpe Avenue, Boscombe, delighted the audience with her reminiscence of the German prisoner of war who was sent each week to do her garden. He was repatriated at the end of 1945, she recalled “He’d always seemed a nice friendly chap, but when the crocuses came up in the middle of our lawn in February 1946, they spelt out “Heil Hitler.” (Bournemouth Evening Echo)

So how come I don’t get mentioned in Reuters when my pair eat an £800 sofa, hmm?
