    Graves looted for UK trade in Nazi souvenirs | The Sun |Features

    Seems very familiar,though if true, a sad reflection on collectors of such items. The pictures of the bones lying loose next to holes in the ground suggest at least some truth in the matter as they are said to have been taken by the German war graves officials.

    The picture of the SS tunic is a bit wrong, as it is Heer and has obviously never been dug up.

    The usual mixture of fact and fiction from the sun.

    Also seems to put a negative spin on anyone collecting Nazi stuff.

    It should be renamed The emergency toilet paper if you are desperate.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Though this is the online version, so virtual toilet paper perhaps.

    Fortunately the article is so riddled with inaccuracies and sensationalistic journalism any rational and level headed person won't take too much notice of it. It's no great surprise to know that TR memorabilia is being sold in the UK or anywhere else around the world, a Google search will tell you that if you're so inclined to want to look for it.

    Judging by the replies, you can tell these are the sorts of people who believe any old crap they read in The Sun and take it all at face value.
    This week they're feeling sorry for the Nazis, next week they'll be ripping them to shreds them on the basis of another Sun story about the war.

    The article wasn't written with any factual evidence presented or any thorough research and should be treated with the contempt it deserves.
