HITLER AT YPRES
See Hitler article:
When I was a little boy my Auld Pop told me Hitler’s regiment was opposite his in the Ypres Salient. I asked Auld Pop since Hitler was there why didn’t he finish him off at the time?
Auld Pop replied, with a twinkle in his eye: “ Laddie, the Jairmans were running so faSt we couldna get them a’ ! Och, more’s the pity, aye! Wee Corporal Hitler jumped in a hole and I lost the only chance I had!”
Of course, this was just an amusing story not to be taken seriously but Hitler WAS at Ypres and had a close call.
