    Ok , who can name a German soldier monk, born in Danzig and based at the Bourges, France Gestapo prison during the war. This good man helped many prisonners by acting in an exemplary way. There is a French stamp dedicated to this man.

    Well done Kai, this wasn't an easy one. The good man deserves to be known . He died in horrible circumstances in 1976 when his monastry burnt.
    It's all yours.

    no idea ... I suppose the obvious answer might be Barnes Wallis ....?

    didn't come up with anything on a search although I have learnt that at the age of eight Guy was sent to Folkestone in Kent and attended St George's Prep School ... .

    Hehehe...you won't find the answer to this one on the internet....;)

    It wasn't Barnes Wallis - here's a clue, it was someone else who flew on the Dams Raid.....

    ( There, I've given it away , now.... )
