Aryan apparition


Talking of visitors to the Carlton Club, Astragal was left bemused by the addition of three individuals dressed in full traditional German attire. What were these Lederhosen-wearers doing there?

Were they members? Had they been forced out of the Carlton Hotel's public bar by baying surveyors to find refuge with Murray and co? Or were they simply an apparition? Astragal's memory is rather hazy, so if anyone can explain their presence, it would be much appreciated.

Answers on a postcard, please.
