bewaffnung -

Josef has an interesting story.  when he joined the waffen-ss in 1943 he was designated to be a cook but refused anything other than infantry.  threatened with a court-martial, he offered to go hand to hand with all the other cooks at once while armed only with a spoon and if he could beat them all (12 of them), he would be allowed to go into the infantry.  his kommander agreed (with a laugh) and now all 12 of the cooks are spending the rest of the war in an infirmary near Hamburg and josef is in the infantry.... but is a great cook!
