On a walk in the park, one French officer helped another
wearing only a T-shirt and shorts get over the wall and away amidst shots fired
by startled guards. The escaper had left a note in his room: "Should I succeed,
I should be obliged by the dispatch of my effects to me at the following
address—Lieut. Pierre Mairesse-Lebrun, Orange (Vaucluse). May God help me!"
He did succeed, and the Germans obliged.
