5 Intriguing Things This American Observed on His Australia Trips


4. The Red Baron’s boot

At the Australian War Memorial in Canberra resides the fur-lined left flying overboot of World War I flying ace and Snoopy nemesis Baron Manfred von Richthofen, the Red Baron. It seems that when he was shot down in France on April 21, 1918, he was near Australian lines, and a party of Australian troops recovered his body – and the boot. The baron apparently not only had a keen eye (enabling him to shoot down a record 80 Allied aircraft before he met his own fate), but a flair for style.
