Nah don't let them get to you sir, lets just play along for now. Tell you what though, when the old gal was shot up bad and we dipped below, trying to keep her steady was like pulling at my first loves panties. * proceeds to laugh * Sir, did you notice anything of interest when you and the captain were away?

AVGWarhawk thinking out loud but in a whisper

"Granted I'm on leave and tending to my favorite past time of gardening, I would have thought I would have been called back for duty with the new guests on this miserable rock. I was not much for the war but felt my duty to Germany only to find myself dispatched to this island."

Tends to the soil and plants.

"There was mention that we Germans eat well on this rock and it is true, but only due to my gardening of vegetables. Fortunate the climate allows for good growing."

Pulls a weed or two. Inspects a potato plant.

"If was not for my special garden of roses this island would ruin the spirits of even the best man! I was very fortunate to get the hybrid rose my father Anton created. The Schultheis Rose! Her beauty is my only rememberance of home."

Looks off into the distance thinking of home.

"Well, our new found friends in the POW camp will get our leftovers as dinner. The usual gruel. Enough to keep them happy but not enough to keep us from breaking them!"

Not much. The castle walls look stout enough, aside from one of the northern turrets being in tumble down shape. Dense forest to the north. They have us hemmed in good, I'd say.

Tinman looks down from the top of the southern turret towards the sound of whispering.
"Gemeiner AVGWarhawk, I can hear you mumbling to yourself again!" *smiles* "Why don't you make yourself useful and make sure the prisoners have water... in the unlikely event that they don't turn out to be spies, I think we should treat them in accordance with the rules of war, yes?... I'm sure the Oberst would agree."

Or we could save the food and water and just shoot them now...

"Jawohl!"

Rollng eyes

Under my breath:

"Private Gardener I'm am. Now I'm the waterboy? Make myself useful? Why I outta... What next, lick ya boots? That will be the day."

Laughs to self.

Turns to get water to the prisoners.

"Personally I would shoot them and save myself the trouble."

Damn, what about troop numbers? They seem so disciplined, I wonder what regiment they belong!

Nisgeis strolled up to the base of the Southeast guard tower and slowly, without a sound climbed the steps upwards to the ramparts. He saw Gefreiter Tinman764 leaning on the stonework, with his back to him, looking out towards the southeast to the point where the Britisher’s submarine was moored. Soon, he thought, he will be inside there examining every scrap of paper, every scribble, every printed word and every system in the sub.

His eyes flicked back to Gefreiter Tinman764 and gave him a thorough inspection. Examining the Gefreiter’s posture, a series of scenarios played out in his mind. A kick to the back of the legs to get him quickly on his knees and then a quick twist of the head to snap the neck, yes, that would be good. Silent and "hands on". His leather clad hands clenched into balls and then relaxed.

Perhaps a quick hoist to the belt, which would send the Gefreiter over the wall and plunging to his death. With luck the Gefreiter would not die instantly and would twitch for several moments before passing on, but would he have time to get down there before the end? It would mean crossing over to the main gate and out to the base of the tower, which would take some time. Ah, to gaze into the eyes of a man who is dying is a wonder in itself. What secrets are revealed to them in their last moments? When will one of them finally give up their secrets to me?

He glanced around, to see who was watching. The East Turret was a fairly well hidden, the parapets obscuring the view from the ground and therefore most of the castle, but it was still somewhat exposed. It would not do to have a prolonged struggle up here. Nisgeis’ eyes settled on the holster on Gefreiter Tinman764’s hip. The fool hadn’t even buttoned it closed and the belt it was attached to was slack about his waist. It would be no trouble to lift the revolver out without him noticing. But where was the fun in that? It was hardly a subtlety either. Perhaps if Tinman764 got in his way, or if he needed a diversion later, yes, that could be a useful strategy. A gunshot would be very noisy and would cause a lot of commotion, drawing attention away from whomever. A prisoner escaping grabbed his revolver and shot him with it, yes that would work well. Poor Tinman764 put up a brave struggle, the report would read, but the vile Britisher overpowered him and shot him through the head. Flowers to his grieving widow or girlfriend. A hero to Germany. A diversion. A pawn.

He smiled to himself. He had spent a few seconds analysing the potential attacks and was pleased that his first instinct was the right one. It always was. Quick, quiet and hands on.

Nisgeis considered retreating down the steps to make a more audible approach. He had spent considerable time and effort in cultivating a reputation as a somewhat capable - not too good, not too bad, yet clumsy officer. It wouldn’t do to get a reputation for stealthy approaches after all that careful work, but on this occasion he decided the wind could provide reason enough for Tinman764 to not have heard him approach.

“Good Afternoon!” Nisgeis called in an affable voice, slightly louder than necessary. “Very Windy, ja?”. “Not the weather for flying a kite in no?”.

“My dear Tinman, I really must talk to you about something, if you have the time to spare from your duties. I would be in your debt for the duration if you had a few moments of your precious time to spare to listen to me.”

“Now, I hear you have been talking to the Oberst about a Britisher spy?”

Walks up to the POW compound fence.

"You there!! Don't stand around looking like you want to escape. Come get this water and tend to your men!"

Drops the pails inside the POW compound.

"If ya thinking of escaping good luck to you. If the guards don't get you the cold waters will certainly put an end to any escape plan."

Turns and walks away.

*accidentally gulps down a mouthful of cigarette smoke in supprise*

"Herr Nisgeis," I splutter between stiffled coughs. "I'm sorry I didn't hear you approaching".
how the hell did he get so close to me without my noticing? And why are his eyes smiling at me?
"Sir, I merely raised the opinion that the enemies finding of our castle was somewhat... hmm ... mysterious. I don't believe it could be a coincidence. Cigarette?"

Jimbuna comes round to conciousness and is immediately aware of a sharp pain in the back of his head and of someone whistling a tune that sounded German in origin.

He tries to move a hand to feel what must be a bruise or cut on his head but realises he is bound to whatever he is lying on, not only that but so is his other hand and both legs.

Not wanting to let his enemies know he has regained consciousness he keeps his eyes closed and recaps what he believes has happened....he can recall the submarine being badly damaged from an air attack and he and the crew working feverishly to keep her from sinking, then finding land before being captured by the Germans. He can also recall swinging a punch at a German (Tyrant) and receiving an agonising blow to the head (cheers Duci) and nothing else after that.

With these thoughts in mind he moves his his head very slowly towards the whistling and slightly opens one eye...what he sees is a surgery or small infirmary of some kind and two Germans (August and Oberon) sitting at the far side of the room on either wall facing each other.

One thing struck jimbuna as being slightly odd about these two Germans...instead of sitting there looking at the prisoner they had obviously been tasked to guard they appeared to only have eyes for each other and were staring at one another in what looked like jimbuna to be in an affectionate way.

Jimbuna gave a wry smile to himself thinking 'thank God I'm strapped backside against the table' then fell back into unconsciousness.

Meine Herren,

Make sure these nosy Brits stay out of the castle unless they've been brought in with an escort...find a Brit nosing around on their own give him the appropiate welcome and bring him before me or Nisgeis. Understood?
Ow and could someone inform Gemeiner the tyrant to shoot any brit on sight when getting to close to their submarine.

that would be all
Zum Befehl Oberst HunterIXC

Enigma returns to his post and resumes his staring into the fog.
He started thinking about his beloved wife and hometown.


"Scheiße, wehre ich nur wider da heim. Meine Hildegard fehlt mir ja richtig."
This place is the worst place to be, despite of the food and the Bavarian beer.

The reminder of the beer brought his thoughts back to yesterday evening

Eh,eh when I think back to yesterday in the canteen, Ducimes had more then
enough of that beer.
He couldn't hold his liqueur no longer. The looks on the face of HunterICX,
when Ducimes peed into the corner where Gefreiter Tinman764 was sleeping. Eh eh eh.

The blowing of the wind makes Gemeiner Enigma shiver. Or is it something else causing this feeling.....???

Hey Oberon. Lets just shoot that fat old Britisher on the table and say he was trying to escape.
