One day two German officers appeared at the gate leading out
of the prisoners' yard. The guard saluted them and let them through, then
recalled that he was supposed to ask for passes from all military personnel. As
the pair walked toward the arch leading into the German yard, the guard ran
after them and asked for their passes. "That's all right, we're coming straight
back," one said. Though his German was good, the guard grew suspicious and
called security. The German officers? Belgian Lieut. Baron D.W. van Lynden and
a Captain Steenhover in homemade uniforms.
