The now empty packet of cigarettes that Field Marshall Rommel gave to Roy Wooldridge.
Close ups of Roy's belongings that he took onto Antiques Roadshow. The episode will air this Sunday (23/11/14).
The incredible story of how legendary German general Erwin Rommel spared the life of a captured British soldier and then served him a glass of beer has been revealed after 70 years.

His story is to be told on BBC1's Antiques Roadshow this Sunday.
