Soldier Roy Wooldridge's life saved by Erwin Rommel
A former soldier has revealed how a Nazi general spared him from the firing squad in World War Two.
Roy Wooldridge, 95, from Hendy, Carmarthenshire, was seized while on a mission in France just before D-Day and taken to Erwin Rommel.
The Royal Engineer was brought before Rommel and asked if he needed anything. He replied "a pint of beer, cigarettes and a good meal".
Now, that empty cigarette packet will feature on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow.
