There is some interesting BAOR detail in here: Alan Lazarus (IWM interview) : Lazarus, Alan (Oral history) (19939) British NCO adviser in Finland, 1940; officer served with 61st Heavy Anti-Aircraft Regt, Royal Artillery in GB, Middle East and North Africa, 1940-1943; served as staff officer in Italy, 1943-1945; served as military governor of Brunswick, Germany, 1945-1946 ...joining 30 Corps in North Africa; POW interrogation training in Cairo. REEL 3 Continues: principles of interrogating POWs. Period as staff officer with 13th Corps in Italy: role as G2I to General Horrocks; opinion of General Horrocks. Recollections of period as Military Governor of Brunswick in Germany, 1945-1946: role and duties; problems of developing infrastructure; contact with displaced persons arriving from Russian occupied zone; development of relations with Russian authorities in Magdeburg; treatment of Russian drunk; problems with Polish displaced persons; attitude to confiscation of German property. REEL 4 Continues: visits to Berlin and Hitler's Chancellery. (bit in BOLD in the above starts at about 14.30mins into REEL 3 there) Re... "treatment of Russian drunk" the Russians requested that the British shoot him, the British said "no we don't do that" and the Russians say - "Well we do - give him back" - British give him back and Russians shoot him... as told, it sounds all very matter of fact... (bit in Bold starts - 21.10mins in. 22.10 Told by Russians to “shoot him” 22.25 “well we don't do that” 23 can’t shoot him. 23.20 Russian arrive to take him away and shoot him by the truck before taking the body away. At around 24mins Alan Lazarus mentions that they "have the Wolfschmitte Kemmel Factory liquers", with which to "trade with the Russians". Which is still made in Germany. And I assume is this (above) - "Originally created in Riga, Latvia in 1847, Wolfschmidt Kummel is the brand leader in this small but growing sector. It is a classic liqueur made to an old Danish recipe with caraway and aniseed flavours combining to give a distinctive taste. It is an ideal aperitif or after dinner liqueur as well as a cocktail ingredient." Producer: Wolfschmidt ABV: 40% Brand: Wolfschmidt Country of Origin: Germany Liqueur Type: Herbal Wiki however seems to have Kummel first distilled in the 16th Century by the Dutch: Kümmel - Wikipedia And: Kümmel: A Little of the Muirfield Spirit Seems to say it is popular with golfers since: "Some say it began when a prominent Scottish regiment fought in the Low Countries, where the drink was popular, during the last stages of World War II"
