1941: Poets at the front - Greek soldiers write short poems on the back of photos


A group of Greek soldiers are posing for a photo in Albania in 1941, during a short break from hostilities.

The soldiers are in an... antiaircraft mode, sporting a variety of weapons.

The most interesting part of this photo though, is the handwritten poem on its back, which, roughly translated, reads as follows:

"Armed with courage, we took the guns from our enemies and now they are on their way back to Rome to eat... macaroni (pasta)".

There's always space for a dry sense of humour, even in the midst of war.
