Wehraboo becomes Wehrabubba...

I suppose that the swastika armband that was also lifted off the dead Nazi general who was carrying this Luger has vanished. They usually have.

One thing I have learned from decades of seeing Lugers come into gun stores is that every single one of them was lifted off a dead Nazi general, along with his swastika armband, which is now missing.

The western front in ’44-’45 was apparently manned by entire divisions of Luger-wielding generals wearing red swastika armbands, which must have made camouflage difficult.
