The following German Notice is to be brought to the attention of all the Officers and NCOs under your Command:- 

Stalag Luft I,                                                      
Gruppe II

Barth, 27/4/44

If a p.o.w. crosses the warning wire  in front of the compound fences, the guards will at once fire at thim with the intention to kill after the first futile challenge.  If he touches the main compound-fences with his body or any object or if he tries to climb over or has done so, so that the p.o.w. is already outside the compound fences, the guards will fire at him with the intention to kill without challenge.  They will stop firing as soon as the p.o.w. comes to a standstill and has raised his hands.
