Warspite maybe closer to the truth though
This is one of the most famous pictures of WWII. It was taken during the Battle of El-Alamein (you can clearly see the pyramid at the exreme right of the picture). The
Germans tried unsuccessfully to hop over the British frontline and take them from behind using an adaptation of Tigger's ale oompah bounce (the Wehrmacht variant).
Warspite has outed the characters of A.A. Milnes Winnie the Pooh as Nazi collaborators and ne'r do wells.
About time too in my opinion, as it is a well known fact, by all people with tin foil
wrapped around their head, ( I'm sporting a rather fetching fedora made out of tin foil from the bottom of the oven ), that Tigger was head of the Nazi Secret Weapons Division, and Eeyore was secretly being trained by Lord Haw-Haw to replace Winston Churchill, whilst Winnie the Pooh was a Matha Hari type character, trying to seduce top Allied politicians and Generals.
....and if you look closely at Winnie-the-pooh films, you will see that the so-called 100 acre wood, is in fact the Black Forest in Bavaria. Not a lot of people know this, but Piglet and Hermann Goering were actually one and the same person.
As they say, real life is stranger than fiction....
