Entering Occupied Belgium
Youare behind enemy lines, in occupied Belgium. Your job is to spy on Germany and get the information to the Allies. Your spymaster is just over the border in the Netherlands. You have information about German airfields, troop movements, and ammunition depots that is essential for the war effort. How can you get your information safely out of Belgium without getting caught by the Germans?StartFragment EndFragment Remember, if the Germans catch you spying in their territory, they will arrest you, possibly torture you, and almost certainly kill you.EndFragment
StartFragmentStartFragmentUse the telegraph. StartFragment EndFragment Trench warfare means the "front" between the two sides stays in the same place. The Allies have laid tens of thousands of miles of copper-core cables from headquarters (HQ) through the trenches to the front line. Your message will get to HQ quickly. However, messages sent by telegraph can be intercepted by the enemy, and will fail if the lines are damaged or cut.EndFragmentEndFragmentEndFragmentEndFragment
StartFragmentStartFragment EndFragmentSend a homing pigeon. StartFragment EndFragment Most army units carry a coop of homing pigeons with them. You can tie a very small message to a pigeon's leg, and it will fly home to HQ with your message. However, pigeons can be shot down or killed by hawks the Germans use for that purpose.EndFragmentEndFragmentEndFragment
StartFragmentStartFragment EndFragmentPass the message along your spy network. StartFragment EndFragment Give your message to the elderly vegetable seller, who will pass it to the letterbox agent, who will send it over the border with a courier. Of course, if the Germans get suspicious of anyone in your network, not only will your message be lost, but it could expose you as a spy and lead to your arrest.EndFragmentEndFragmentEndFragment
