BereniceUK Posted 23 October , 2013 Share Posted 23 October , 2013 I'd never thought of this until a recent churchyard visit (and I realise it may well have been discussed before) but what were attitudes to British servicemen with the surname 'German' like during the war? CWGC lists 44 soldiers and sailors from the Great War ranging from linen keeper and waiter to Captain and Major. I can well imagine that there would have been ignorant and bigoted people in the UK who wouldn't have understood the difference between surname and nationality.
