Dodgy German propaganda leaflet ?

I have already posed a question relating to Pages 59 & 60 of 'Ron's Actual Army Album', this photo might help you make up your mind :)

Ron -
I'm pretty sure it's the same guy - look at the tip of his nose ? He wouldn't be wearing a tin topee either so it has to be a dodgy Tedeschi job, trying to convince the lads they would be well looked after - in many cases they were, but all too often the reverse was true, especially when they would put a POW train alongside a fuel train hoping it would be bombed as happened in one of the stories on the BBc series.
Forgotten the details but the relatives were swearing at the American pilot for his "friendly fire" but this was not the case as he was bombing a fuel train - he wasn't to know a POW train was alongside.
