    Thanks for the information on Lance Corporal Nacken, it's nice to have a name for him and know the rest of his story, and it's great that the Canadian solider, Corporal Roberts, survived the war too. It's almost a shame that they never got the chance to meet again, I bet they'd have liked that.

    As for the WWI-era enormous German solider, you'd hope he never had to engage in trench warfare, he'd definately have been at a disadvantage, towering out of a trench dug for his much smaller mates!
