"British cavalry, male and female, have brutally invaded Eire, bringing bloodhounds. They say they have come only for the huntin', but they can't deceive us Nazis, the loathsome hypocrites." MISSING: Low's GOAT, missing in a forest of waste paper which Low was foolish enough to save at the request of authorities who are apparently too damned tired to collect it.
