4 Oct 1918: POW Graudenz

Friday Oct 4th.     Tonight, about 7.15, the electric lights flickered but failed to go out.  A minute or two afterwards there was a hubbub outside.  It turned out that Capt. Clinton, just released from cells for his attempt at escape viâ the tunnel, had made his sixth successful attempt.  He climbed from an upper window along the insulated electric cables (the scheme for turning off the electric lights to aid him failed) swarmed down a rope once he had crossed the barbed wire, and jumped over the outer wall.  Jolly stout fellow!  He was seen and they gave chase but he soon got lost in the moonless night.  Hope he gets away!
