Given my latent prognosticative proclivities, my lovely and longsuffering wife frequently refers to me as being psychic. I know what you’re thinking, but no, she doesn’t say I’m psychotic – at least not out loud. And this piece is a perfect example of one of those interesting and ongoing synchronicities.

In less than ten minutes the Mosquito's bombs breached the prison walls, completely destroying the Gestapo barracks and killing most of its soldiers within who were then eating their lunch. As nearly 300 French prisoners escaped through the newly opened, still smoking walls, the Mosquito bombers quickly departed, leaving behind the shell shocked, incredulous Germans to wonder what had just hit them.
