Lady Harriet Jephson

Altheim_GermanyThe Altheim daily papers complain that they are inundated with foolish questions over the telephone. “Ist Namur belgisch oder französisch?” (Is Namur Belgian or French?)

“Gehen die Schottländer wirklich mit nackten Beinen in die Schlacht?” (Do the Highlanders really go into battle with naked legs?)

“Wie lange wird es ungefähr dauern, bis die Deutschen Paris eingenommen haben?” (How long will it be before the Germans have taken Paris?) and so on.
