THOMAS GUNN - GERMAN FOOTBALLER FRITZ WALTER (LUFT008)
This models shows the footballer Fritz Walter who played 61 caps for Germany during his football career, a career which was somewhat rudely interrupted by WW2! He was fortunate to be drafted into a Luftwaffe unit 'Rote Jager' under coach Herberger, a unit designed to keep men like Walter out of danger. Walter was captured by the Russians at the end of the war but managed to escape a long term prison sentence. He went back to Germany and captained the team that won Germany's first football World Cup in 1954.
