A Cool piece of history

Steve Harding <mgbgt1@...>
 






 Starting in 1941, an increasing number of British Airmen found themselves as the involuntary guests of the Third Reich, and the Crown was casting about for ways and means to facilitate their escape. Now obviously, one of the most helpful aids to that end is a useful and accurate map, one showing not only where stuff was, but also showing the locations of 'safe houses' where a POW on-the-lam could go for food and shelter. Paper maps had some real drawbacks -- they make a lot of noise when you open and fold them, they wear out rapidly, and if they get wet, they turn into mush. 

Someone in MI-5 (similar to America's OSS) got the idea of printing escape maps on silk. It's durable, can be scrunched-up into tiny wads, and unfolded as many times as needed, and makes no noise whatsoever.

At that time, there was only one manufacturer in Great Britain that had perfected the technology of printing on silk, and that was John Waddington, Ltd. When approached by the government, the firm was only too happy to do its bit for the war effort. 

By pure coincidence, Waddington was also the U.K. Licensee for the popular American board game, Monopoly. As it happened, 'games and pastimes' was a category of item qualified for insertion into 'CARE packages', dispatched by the International Red Cross to prisoners of war. 

Under the strictest of secrecy, in a securely guarded and inaccessible old workshop on the grounds of Waddington's, a group of sworn-to-secrecy employees began mass-producing escape maps, keyed to each region of  Germany or Italy where Allied POW camps were regional system).. When processed, these maps could be folded into such tiny dots that they would actually fit inside a Monopoly playing piece. 

As long as they were at it, the clever workmen at Waddington's also managed to add: 
        1. A playing token, containing a small magnetic compass 
        2. A two-part metal file that could easily be screwed together 
        3. Useful amounts of genuine high-denomination German, Italian, and 
        French currency, hidden within the piles of Monopoly money
 British and American air crews were advised, before taking off on their first mission, how to identify a 'rigged' Monopoly set -- by 
        means of a tiny red dot, one cleverly rigged to look like an ordinary 
        printing glitch, located in the corner of the Free Parking square. 
Of the estimated 35,000 Allied POWS who successfully escaped, estimated one-third were aided in their flight by the rigged Monopoly sets. Everyone who did so was sworn to secrecy indefinitely, since the British Government might want to use this highly successful ruse in still another, future war. The story wasn't declassified until 2007, when the surviving craftsmen from Waddington's, as well as the firm itself, were finally honored in a public ceremony. 
        
It's always nice when you can play that 'Get Out of Jail' Free' card! 

I realize some of you are too young to have any personal connection to WWII (Sept. '39 to Aug. '45), but this is still interesting.

FW: Zen Teachings

Steve Harding <mgbgt1@...>
 


 








 
Zen Teachings

1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me,
for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me for the path is narrow. In
fact, just piss off and leave me alone.

2. Sex is like air. It's not that important unless you aren't getting any.

3. No one is listening until you fart.

4. Always remember you're unique.. Just like everyone else.


5. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

6. If you think nobody cares whether you're alive or dead, try missing a
couple of mortgage payments.

7. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their
shoes.

8. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

9. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and
he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

10. If you lend someone 20 bucks and never see that person again, it was
probably well worth it.

11. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

12. Some days you are the bug; some days you are the wind screen.

13. Don't worry; it only seems kinky the first time.

14. Good judgment comes from bad experience ... and most of that comes
from bad judgment.

15. A closed mouth gathers no foot.

16. There are two excellent theories for arguing with women. Neither one works.

17. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.

18. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

19. We are born naked, wet and hungry, and get slapped on our ass / then things just keep getting worse.

20. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on
the same night.

Hi Larry,
We meet last year , I have a 74 MG Midget that the engine  caught on fire.
I sold a lot of parts off it. I still have the body and some parts. I need to get it out of my garage by next week 3/13/10. I hate to take it to a junk yard. If any one in your club would it they can have it.
Please give me a call 215-384-3472 if anyone would like it. I have a title for it also. The car is in Warminster PA. 18974.

Rich, not all of us can drive to Western Pa and most of us would rather spend that amount of money on the MG rather than a fly fishing class. So let me offer some alternatives.
 
My fly fishing club, the Main Line Fly Tyers if offering a 1 day fly fishing overview on April 10th at Resicca Falls in the Poconos.  the class is $40 for the whole day.  http://mainlineflytyers.net/MLFT-FishDay.htm
 
Anyone that is interested in learning to tye flies can take my class I will be teaching starting on March 9th.  I know its the same night as the GT but thats the night the township has the class space.  6 weeks of tying instruction.  Here is the link for that class
 
And if you would rather set up some sort of MG/Fly fishing seminar we could do one for our MG members at a local park and do some casting, talk about files ETC and do that for free.  IF anyone wants more info on these give me a call 610-630-9738
