This actor is one of the most well known people in Latin America, Ruben Aguirre. He plays a character in the "El Chavo" TV shown, called "Professor Girafalles". He's identical to El Eldross. I remember myself playing Kaiserreich for DH as Princely India back then and I saw El Eldross for the first time and was like "My God, he's like Girafalles!"

Zhang, alongside General Guan Linzheng and Marshal Chang Hsueh-liang were lauded as being foremost among China's young commanders.

Luftwaffe lieutenant Ingrid Fromm at her post in the Netherlands before her defection to Britain, 1955. Despite having been a loyal supporter of the Reich since her childhood, her faith in the regime was undermined by the actions of both German forces and Dutch collaborators. On April 19th, 1955, she stole a small transport plane and landed in the district of Folkestone and Hythe in Kent. She was brought before the Joint Intelligence Bureau after being taken into the custody of local police and lived out the remainder of her life in the United Kingdom.

A policeman in a Chongqing restaurant attempting to assert his authority over staff and patrons, 1952. China's police took decades after the end of the Pacific War to become truly professional, with officers being seen as either corrupt, egotistical, incompetent or some combination of the three. Soliciting bribes, triad association and merely causing disturbances in public areas were activities that many cops took part in. Truly dedicated and upstanding officers struggled to climb through the ranks and earn the respect of the communities they hoped to serve.

Air Force Captain Hugh Watts in Munich, 1962. The deployment of African Americans in the forces occupying Germany caused a good deal of unrest in the areas where they were stationed. Some towns requested that the Toronto Pact leadership replace them with white units as to spare the locals the 'indignity of being lorded over by inferiors.'
