One night while in detention for his air-raid-shelter attempt
(see #6), Captain Janek Lados, who had somehow gotten hold of a hacksaw, cut
through the bars of a window in his cell on the castle's western ramparts. He
shimmied down the length of his bedsheet and dropped the final 20 feet to the
ground, breaking a bone in his ankle. Astonishingly, he made it as far as the
Swiss frontier before being captured and hauled back.
