Historically Well-Informed Soccer Club Of The Day Dept

So, the 11th of November is Armistice Day in England, and Airdrie United decided to honor the occasion with a suitable cover for the program for the day's match. The only problem, as detected by one of Rod Liddle's mates...well, see for yourself.

And if it's not obvious what the problem is, here's the key paragraph in the club chairman's official apology.
The original match sponsor for the game was Network Rail so I decided to base our Remembrance programme images on wartime trains. A number of photos were considered and when the final choice was made, the wrong image was lifted which was almost identical to the one that I had selected. Unfortunately it showed German soldiers instead of allied troops with the nurses.
