Recently read a book called After Daybreak about the liberation of Belsen and the medical efforts afterwards. One of the photos inside the book from the IWM shows the Jewish Chaplain of 8 Corps Leslie Hardman standing over one of the mass graves at Belsen on 21st April 1945 reading the kaddish. He is wearing a sidearm. Was it usual practice for Jewish padred in the RAChD to wear sidearms? Or was it a special dispensation becasue of the dangers inside Belsen? Any thoughts anyone? I've never heard of a Christian Padre carrying a sidearm.
