Are you Charlie Baker?

I have translated this short story from an archived article in German newspaper Die Zeit from June 1976, which I came across via a link which Konstantin Binder posted to his Twitter account. The original title is “Oh! You’re German?” but I don’t feel that this direct translation matches the tone of the article. I find it touching and an insight into how I feel some Germans I have met and talked to see their relationship with the British.
