Lieutenant Hubert Gruber

Lieutenant Hubert Gruber, generally known only as Lieutenant Gruber, is a fictional character from the British sitcom series 'Allo 'Allo! and is portrayed by Guy Siner.

Gruber is the aide-de-camp to General Von Klinkerhoffen, and lives in the local château. Later, he also becomes the unofficial assistant of Colonel von Strohm, after Captain Hans Geering goes missing in Series 3.

Gruber is an Oberleutnant in the Panzer division in the Wehrmacht (evidenced by the rose-pink piping on his uniform and single gilt star on the silver epaulette), although in very early episodes he wears the rank of Lieutenant, and a white Waffenfarbe, which is for the infantry. The rank lieutnant can be translated for the rank below lieutenant. He is the recipient of the Iron Cross 1st Class, Iron Cross 2nd Class, War Merit Cross 2nd Class, with Swords, Eastern Front Medal, General Assault Badge and the Wehrmacht Long Service Award.

He uses an armoured car, which he often refers to as his "little tank" and is driven by the unseen character "Clarence". The tank is named Hubert in the last series.

Gruber comes from Baden-Baden
