When the sub-editors got wind of a 10 year-old sent home from school in the UK after a controversial WWII day, their creative juices quickly started flowing.
The teachers in this particular school probably hadn’t banked on one student going all out for the commemorative day for the Second World War, but 10 year-old William was sent
goose-stepping marching home after the school felt his efforts went a little too far.
His mother Davina told The Sun that her son is “history mad” and loves learning more about the past. She also revealed she wasn’t sure if her son’s costume was a good idea at first, but the youngster convinced her otherwise. With a breath-taking grasp of history it must be added.
“I wasn’t sure at first, but William said Hitler was kind of the lead character in the war,” she said.

The Sun headline makers earned their crust with the story when they went with this effort in the paper today.
