Airmen Made Sausages from Their Blood
Two German air force sergeants are facing a court martial after trying to mass produce sausages made with the blood of their comrades.
The two men, who are based at Fürstenfeldbruck, a fighter squadron headquarters, near Munich had already trialed a traditional receipe using their own blood.
But they were caught trying to recruit fellow servicemen and family members to ensure a constant flow of raw materials.
One of the soldiers posted pictures of himself on a popular German website siphoning off their blood and adding it to a recipe for the traditional Blotwurst sausage using onions, bacon, spices and breadcrumbs.
The incident only came to the attention of senior officers after one of their fellow soldiers reported the fact that he had been asked to donate some blood for the scheme.
