World War Two Ended At Wembley, May 1956, Not In May 1945 Haiku

Bert Trautmann's neck-break,

In May 1956,

Stuart Butler

Bert Trautmann was a member of the Hitler Youth and a Nazi paratrooper.

After the war he played in goal for Manchester City and was much loved, especially after he broke his neck in the FA Cup Final against Birmingham City, but continued to defend his net! Manchester City won the game 3-1.


"My dad was at Tobruk, 1942, trying to kill my best mate's dad, who was trying to kill him," says Stuart Butler. "Martin (Stuart's best mate) tells me how difficult it was to grow up in England during the 1950s and 1960s as the son of a German prisoner of war. Bert Trautmann did a lot to help."
