Nice choices, will we see them painted up?

Great imagination to create these.

A line from the film that has taken on new meaning, especially for any military type, captured out of uniform in enemy territory.

"Herr Cavendish, what information were you required to collect during your escape?". A typical nasty Hun trick to ask that, suggesting espionage.

But, in the last decade or so, we have learnt so much more about the activities of MI9 coaching POWs as to how to do just that. Debriefing a successful escapee is one thing, but planning spying activities in advance sounds very hazardous for the unfortunate captive, if discovered. Have to ask what value it had anyway.

The Allies had little hesitation in executing civilian spies or enemy soldiers out of uniform e.g, Otto Sk's men in the Ardennes.
