Just as a curio for you guys (especially the ones who will portray the Poles). Poles salute with two fingers, not the entire hand. This is always done to a hat or helmet and never to a bare head.

That looks so much like a certain salute I used to make in my woggle wearing days, that as a German player Im going to enjoy taunting the Poles with calls of "dib, dib, dib, dob ,dob,dob"

We have had Cassino...

...The Mace...

...The Drop...

...and Eagles over the Rhine

so that's 4 times for the "Uber-Poles" (and a couple more for little old me) :D

Meh, no need to taunt. I usually say it myself. :)
