Captured Rommel

Murphy himself was a hero. He fought in North Africa and was a member of the long range desert group. There is a legendary story of his attempt to capture the famous German General Rommel.

After disappearing behind enemy lines for over two weeks he sent back a telegram. Decoded, it read: 'Rommel captured!'

The joy was uncontrolled at regimental headquarters. But it was dispelled when Murphy arrived back. He was battered, bleeding and bedraggled.

'We got the message "Rommel captured",' beamed the colonel.

'No, sir,' said Murphy. 'It's been wrongly decoded. It should read "Camel ruptured".'
