  1. You have to wonder about the British soldiers here, definitely not civilians no pun intended very good femulations

  2. Indeed, I also imagine that the Germans considered this to be humiliating and that the soldiers were literally femulating for their lives

    1. The guy looks a lot like Jeff Foxworthy....
      He had a similar line in his stand-up routine...
      "Honey, I think your skirt is a bit too short"...

    Who knew that life in a WWII German POW camp could be such a drag? Puts "Hogan's Heroes" to shame by comparison.

    If mere "soldiers" had access to such amenities, one can only wonder what additional perks prisoners in German POW camps dedicated to British officers were privy to...

  5. I was in single sex education from 9 to 18. Every year there was a scroll play so some boys had to take on the women's roles.

    I wanted desperately to so do but was scared that my desire to be a girl would show through, especially as I would have wanted to dress properly in all layers.
