Colonel Kurt Von Strohm (Richard Marner) - The corrupt German town commandant. He is kept occupied by hiding valuable local paintings and antiques, which he intends to sell after the war. He frequently visits the cafe, where the waitresses provide him with much entertainment. He always gets René to do his dirty work, threatening him with the line "Othervise I vill have you shot!" Hans - "He vould, he did it before!" Overweight, bumbling and greedy, the Colonel often promises René a cut in the profits but was quick to take them away. "Ve are vinning ze var. I am a German officer and I can shoot anyone I like!" Hans mimed expanding head motions behind his back.
