It looks right from the viewer's point of view but the eagle itself is looking left.  I'd say eh Boof is correct here.

It looks to it’s left. I am 100% correct. The only person on here who potentially knows more than me on the history of WWII is @Ke1t

@Sooper-hanz 😂😂😂

I'd be embarrassed to type that.     ( Ambineckstrous )works better in print.)

 

But it wouldn't stop me typing it though. :dance:

What’s the worst shirt you’ve ever had? I had a silk one with velvet cut outs of various fruit emblazoned on it. Was specifically bought for a Shite shirt night but it was absolutely howling. 

Under the Nazis there were two imperial eagles. The eagle of the party faced right , the eagle of the Reich faced left.  I've heard various reasons for that... a couple being that the Nazis were looking East for Lebensraum, or that they just wanted to be cunts because they were, after all, Nazis. 

Historically, the Germans usually used the left-facing eagle, but they also used a two-headed eagle early doors. But since 'Germany' as we know it has only really been around since 1815, you can dismiss any eagle prior to that as being representative of Germany, as far as I'm concerned. 

Anyway, the Nazis and the Reich were two separate entities, even though the Nazis controlled the Third Reich. Maybe the Nazis just wanted to be different. Who knows what goes on in a Nazis head?

Probably one or two posters on here. 😬

Anyway, different, but same.

No idea why I'm quoting Studebaker. 

You're clever people... you'll figure out who I meant to quote.

I was hopeful this look would take off again. Don’t think it would fit anymore so will probably drop off to the charity shop once the dark nights draa in.

That's a young Gervais isn't it? When he was a minor pop star?

Had a hole from the bullet you could have put a beer can through, weirdly was in his back but I guess the shot came when he was walking away from the trench to celebrate, no sick note, suffered with the injury till the day he died.

Not at all, I regularly masturbate over the stuff. I admire the Germans, takes a special type to start a war with half the World. They didn't bargain on Churchill though. He was our Liam Neeson.

Imperial eagle used by Germany is the oldest in Europe, copied from the Roman standard bearers in the 13 and 14 century which they took from their past. First use in any army was Roman, gaius marius being credited with it 107 AD. Back then the eagle had a religious connotation to it and not just a symbol of power etc.

during fredericks reign 1200ad it was used as a symbol of the royal family in Germany .only single headed though, the symbol for Roman Christianity was a 2 headed eagle up until 1807 and indicated the holy Roman army.

 

so as per, symbolism stole from our ancient ancestors. 
 

and it’s definitely an eagle,(Rome) 

ancient Greeks celebrated the phoenix as a messenger for Helios (sun god)

I don't think Poodler's ornament ( GBN)  is an eagle at all.  Looks more like a pigeon with Downs.
