‘I escaped the Nazis with your father’, veteran tells Duchess of Cornwall

July 6, 2017

According to The Telegraph:

…when Edward Rose, formerly of the Green Jackets Rifle Brigade, spoke to the Duchess of Cornwall this week, he revealed an extraordinary connection, telling her he had escaped a Second World War prison camp with the help of her father.

Lt Rose, then just 20, had embarked on a daring escape from 9AH Spangenberg along with Major Bruce Shand…as part of a 25-strong group, who had taken their chances while being marched out of the castle while guards’ attention lapsed.

After speaking in depth to the Duchess about his experiences, he modestly proclaimed his brush with royalty “not too bad”.
