Old time winter “war”


Old winter photo from 1956
photographed in the northern german city of Itzehoe near Rendsburg.

2 young danish lieutenants from the danish troops stationed in the city
“shot” by a third danish lieutenant (my dad).

These 2 hopeful young men tried to impress two young german girls
but they learned something about girl power and was “washed” in the snow
the girls weren’t impressed by the danish warriors abilities in snow fight.

The photographer got a good laugh – the girls also did.

Snow isn’t only uncomfortable
it can be a source of great entertainment too.

Great fun (english)
Très grand amusant (french)
Viel Spaß (german)
Skæg og ballade (danish)
