Auf wiedersehen Englander!

Posted by John Patrick Reynolds on


Auf wiedersehen Englander! A German in Allied uniform tells a British soldier ‘See you later’ (in German) as he shoots him. Great stuff from the Victor comic.

Apparently Germans used this ruse a lot at the beginning of the so-called Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes, the last German offensive of the war.

The Victor comic was produced by Britain’s top comic publisher DC Thomson for more than 40 years – between 1961 and 1992. In its heyday, it sold hundreds of thousands of copies each week.

I am the the first and only screenprinter to have permission from DC Thomson to use their archive of images for my work.
