He was in the German Army. I thought that was pretty clear. Landa even makes light of the Lt's uniform he was wearing when he discovers his corpse in the tavern. He said something along the lines of, "you've done well for yourself, I'm surprised, given your record of insubordination."

Yes! And he only killed Gestapo officers, because apparently they tortured him.

(edit: You've really missed out on a LOT of the film, haven't you?)

. . . it isn't unusual for a german soldier to be in a french jail during the occupation for killing -- germans?
