From the Back Cover:

“The escapers lowered themselves one by one into the narrow opening of the tunnel. James and Dowse went first, followed by Churchill and Wings. Johnny was last, pulling the trap door behind him as he squeezed his bulky form down into the gloom. . . . “Their progress along the impossibly narrow tunnel was far from easy.. . . It was a terrifying experience, Wings admitted later. Much to his relief and after what seemed an interminable journey, he and Churchill finally scrambled out of the exit hatch into the open and the refreshing September breeze. “For Johnny the experience was even worse. He was half as big again as any of the other men and so the tunnel seemed even more tortuously constricting. His progress was slow and laborious. Finally . . . he became stuck, this time halfway out of the exit hole. He could only manage to get his head out and one hand while his other hand trailed behind him clinging on to his bag of provisions.” —From The Dodger
