Strange happenings on a train

I decided to visit my parents. We have an old ancestral home in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps near Munich.

My monotonous  train ride from Berlin to Munich was interrupted in Nurnberg when four tough SA Brownshirts boarded the train and sat in the row in front of me.  They entertained themselves by pulling out their wallets and sharing pictures. At first I thought the pictures were of girlfriends, but I overheard one of the Stormtroopers say, “Isn’t he good looking?”

I leaned forward a bit, pretending to retrieve a section of my newspaper. This is when I caught a glance of one of the pictures. It was a handsome young man. A member of the SA party met my glance and gave me a hard stare. I decided I would find a seat elsewhere, farther away from these scar-faced thugs.

My father the WWI  general will be interested to know that Hitler’s venerated SA tolerates homosexuality. This is no surprise as it is headed by Ernst Roehm.
