jsut quickly as i’m leaving work.

his WIFE was on the front line in the Prussian army fighting against Russia.

She was captured, and escaped.
Went back to the prison camp… i forget why, , then escaped
got a job at a furniture factory… saved up some money, then snuck BACK INTO THE PRISON camp - found her sisters, then escaped AGAIN!

amazing… have asked him to come to the office next week andill take him out for a cup of tea/a beer after work.
