German Airmen make their escape ......

The german airmen have been moved to a farm further down the coast - ready to make their move to a rendez-vous with a german landing party from an E-boat....

---oXo---

The airmen are transferred to the outbuilding of the farm...
British regular troops conduct a search of a nearby windmill and its barn ...
The german landing party move up the estuary towards the rendezvous point....
A patrol of british regulars along the railway line ....
The airmen and their guides cross the road .....
The local home guard setup their command post at the windmill, one of their patrols comes in to report ....
The germans have landed, and move slowly to the rendezvous point at the stone circle on the nearby hill...
The airmen and their guides make their way down behind the hedge; their van will be used to distract the home guard ....
The home guard from the pill box and a local patrol check out the van ... "Papers please" ....
While the home guard were distracted the airmen and one guide jump the hedge and make it part-way across the open area and hunker down in the lee of some scrub.... the home guard patrol starts to move down the road ....
One of the party who had been looking after the airmen fires his gun.  The sound of a few bursts of machine gun fire echoes across the stillness of the evening; a patrol of regulars stops to investigate

Hearing the gunfire the home guard run for cover at the nearby signal box; meanwhile the airmen and their guard run across the railway line.....
The home guard meet up with the regular patrol, neither of them have seen anything .....
The airmen make contact with the landing party .....
and then make their way up the hill to the rendezvous point ....
and then down to the boats .......

---oXo---

will the german landing party with the airmen get down the estuary and be picked up by the e-boat ?

 to be continued .......
