Airdrie United Will Not be Allowed to Forget

This is the Airdrie United programme from last Saturday's Second Division game versus Livingston. The game was played the day before Remembrance Sunday and club officials used the above image from the Second World War with the words 'Lest We Forget.'

Admirable sentiments - although no one at New Broomfield seemed to realise the photograph is of German soldiers. A club official said 'We thought they were Austrians'.

Wasn't Adolf Hitler born in Austria? Lest we forget indeed...


  1. Oh for any sake! Just what were they thinking? Or not thinking, I suppose.

    No doubt this programme will now be a collectors item - for all the wrong reasons.
