By the end of World War Ⅱ, the German military police went from home to home dragging soldiers absent without leave from bedrooms, basements, clothes-closets, attics, and hay lofts. They found large pieces of white cloth, with no hems, on the men. They were told, "It is a handkerchief." The military police asked, "Doesn't it look large for a handkerchief ? " One of the men answered, "I have large colds." Men at the front had been searched for handkerchiefs, with or without hems, before they went into action.
