Beselare Posted 5 December , 2011 Share Posted 5 December , 2011 In Geoff Bridger's book The Battle of Neuve Chapelle, on page 99 there is a reproduction of a painting showing a German officer and some men surrendering to a British officer. Both officers are saluting with their left hand. Is this a simple mistake by the artist, or was it 'the done thing' when surrendering, to use the left hand? There doesn't appear to be any reason why either of the officers couldn't have used their right hand. Bob Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
