    Take a good look at the sleeve of his jacket. This is a true soldier.!

    He sure is! But on the other hand I am wundering would the soldiers that captured or guard them know the significance of the badges on the guy's sleeve...? ...and what if a relative or friend of the guy (the British one!) died in a destroyed tank....
    Don't get me wrong, I find the personal tank destruction badge a very high standing soldiers award, and am still after one.
    But these kind of pictures are quiet confronting, (to me!!).

    yup.
