I can remember learning German; we had to learn German, because I was at an intermediate school, which was equivalent of the Grammar School now, and we had to pass an exam to get in. But the Germans, they used to come towards the end of the school week, maybe, or school fortnight, and they used to ask us questions to see how we were getting along in German. And some of them … an officer used to give us a little medal if we were very good. Well, we weren’t all very good, and we did not like our German teacher!
