DIETMAR WINKS AT UNFRIENDLY CROWDS
LONDON. General Dietmar, the Nazi radio commentator, winked at the crowd when with ten other surrendered German generals, he reached Windermere, in the Lake District. The generals were taken in an Army truck from Windermere Station on the 12-mile journey to Grizedale Hall prison camp, near Ambleside.
Hundreds of people fr.om the train crovyded round as the immaculate Nazis emerged from the three coaches reserved for them, each struggling with his own large trunk.
With the crowd pressing in appealing glances from the general's to the British guards for help with the trunks were ignored and they had to swallow their dignity and stagger with the trunks through the press of people and heave them into the truck.
The crowd was unfriendly and many rude remarks were overheard.
