His washerwoman, the redoubtable Madame de Starche was overfond of stiffening agents in her laundering. This had the consequence of encasing the unfortunate Karl in an almost immovable cloth casement. His love of huge cuffs made him resemble a school zebra crossing attendant and occasioned much quiet hilarity among his troops.

Hence his sobriquet of Der Alt Schildwache

With one convulsive bound, he was free!
