Two words in Morse code show defiance to Führer: PoW who stitched up Hitler in message that his henchman failed to spot
They were the secret messages of resistance that Hitler’s henchmen failed to spot.
Held in a Nazi camp, Major Alexis Casdagli whiled away the long hours sewing samplers in cross-stitch.
His captors were so impressed by his pretty needlework they even put it on display in the camp. Yet not one of them spotted the coded messages he had stitched into his designs – which read ‘God Save the King’ and ‘F*** Hitler’.
