An Ace Among Migrant Birds - New Zealand to Siberia

As a community the birds are peaceable. Unlike most species of bird life they are rarely seen fighting. They amuse themselves by flying into the air and tumbling earthwards, while a gallery of spectators of the genus applaud the exhibition. The godwits are shore birds and live on mud flats and tidal waters. As winter approaches in New Zealand the god-wits assemble on many beaches in the North Island of New Zealand, preparatory to the great hegira to the Northern Hemisphere. April and May see the great hosts setting out on their trackless way across leagues of ocean and land, to their destination—the tundras of Siberia. The sight is a most picturesque one, as the birds use method in their preparations and movements. They rise in obedience to their leaders and adopt a horseshoe formation. The rounded part of the shoe forms the front and acts as a break-wind. It is made up of tier upon tier of godwits. The stronger birds are eligible for a place In this part of the crescent that must meet the impact of adverse winds encountered in the long flight of some seven or eight thousand miles. The arms of the horseshoe stream out behind. This enclosure of the half circle is the place where the weaker birds gather with the breakwind in front.
Thus the great flight commences. They fly over lonely seas and isolated islands far removed from the main avenues of civilisation. The godwits traverse the Pacific Islands of New Caledonia, New Hebrides, and Fiji; Northern Australia, the Philippine Islands, China, Japan, the Commander Islands; thence on to their objective—the shorelines of Siberia.
Though there are several beaches in New Zealand from which the annual migration sets out, the Ninety-Mile Beach (along the extreme promontory of the North Island) and Spirits Bay (on the uttermost tip of the Dominion) are closely associated with the epic Sight. The name given by the Maoris to the bay indicates in their mythology the hopping-off place of the souls of the natives for the Elysian fields. This was prior to the advent of the white man and is believed by the latter to have had its origin in the annual flight of the godwits.
How such an occurrence annually impressed itself on the primitive mind of the poetical and imaginative Maori can be understood from the description of an English eye witness of the departure:—
“Godwits rose with a mighty rustle. As the sun was dipping into the sea an old male bird uttered a strident call, clarion dear, and shot straight into the air. It was followed by a multitude. The great host rose higher and higher until it was merely a stain in the sky. It seemed the leader shaped the course due north and the stain melted into the night.”
The godwits' knowledge of the route and their ultimate objective is no less intriguing than their habits. From October, when they begin to arrive back in New Zealand, till the time of their departure beginning in April, they have never been known to nest and rear their young in New Zealand. That is reserved for their Siberian sojourn. The Maoris have a saying regarding the difficulty of finding something: “As hard to find as a kauka's egg.” This is the Maori name for the godwit.
In the great ocean and land migration some birds, to use a colloquialism, “miss the bus.” These truants winter in New Zealand, but none of their eggs have been found. The godwits lay their eggs and hatch out their young, from May to July, in their breeding places on the barren stretches of tussock land between the hills and the seashore in Siberia. By October the youngsters are strong enough on the wing to fare forth on the flight with their parents to faraway New Zealand.
Two theories are advanced to explain the unerring instinct that enables the birds to find their way across the vast distances of land and sea that separate their two homes. One is that the birds, in past ages understood only in terms of geological nomenclature, followed old land lines when Asia and the innumerable islands dotting the Pacific were one continuous whole. The gradual submergence of vast areas of land, as generation after generation of godwits made their annual flights, was so imperceptible that the customary hegira became natural. Thus the route was followed by instinct through an infinity of ages.
The second theory is that the birds acquired the habit of following air currents in the upper atmosphere and thus reached their destination. This theory and a belief that the birds' keenness of sight enables them to accomplish their great ocean flight finds only limited acceptance. Keenness of sight—pronounced as it may be in some species of winged creatures—would be useless over the great stretches of water pursued by the godwits. Indeed, the first hop from New Zealand is over a thousand miles of the Pacific before land is sighted again.
Whatever the explanation may be of the extraordinary flight, the godwit may be truly termed the Ace among migratory birds.

Hitler's Escape

Greg Hallett, author of
"Hitler Was a British Agent"
Desribes Hitler's Escape

Hitler was a British Agent Part 1 of 6


Edited by Traducteur Sans Frontiéres

Below, the former agent Greg Hallett desribes how the English intelligence service, during the Russian siege of Berlin in two coordinated operations, rescued both Hitler and his nearest man Martin Bormann, from getting into Russian captivity. The short email text have been illustrated and divided into, first Hitler's rescue and then Bor-mann's, to make the course of events more clearer. All explanations below marked (*), including this, is made by the editor.

The flight way and the different vehicles used in the rescue of Hitler and Bormann.


Operation Winnie the Pooh

The Rescue of Hitler

In the first of these parallel rescue operations to get Hitler and his newly wedded wife out of Berlin, kayaks, a mini-sub, a motorboat and two aircraft, were used.

The author Ian Fleming
The rescue operation of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun was, from 9.50 pm on May 1, 1945, commanded by Ian Fleming. The author of the wellknown James Bond books/films and with a past in the English intelligence service.
Adolf Hitler in his glory days
Adolf Hitler had, as former Fuhrer, access to Swiss bank account numbers and other larger secrets, some of them Nazi military secrets.
Anthony Blunt, the illegitimate son of King George V, was a member of the rescue party. As he had refused to attend the training for „Op. Winnie the Pooh“ and also was a Russian spy, it was necessary to keep secret the real purpose of the operation, from the rescue party. The aim of the Russians was not only to get their hands on Berlin, but also on Hitler's person.

Hitler and Eva left the bunker at 3.50 pm, April 30 and hid in the bulkhead passage, locked themselves in until 8 pm in the evening.

A part of the river Spree in central Berlin

Hitler was taken out through the locks that close off the water to the upper Spree river.
The Charlottenburg locks, Berlin.
The tunnels between the upper and lower locks, were being used as a temporary Red Cross hospital. At April 28, 1945, the lower locks were closed and the upper opened, resulting in the drowning of both personnel and patients. The next day, 29 April 1945, 6 pm, the reverse was made, i.e. closing of the upper locks and opening of the lower, partially emptiening the hospital tunnels and flooding the Spree river with drowned bodies. This gave cover for Hitler's scout party, floating downstream together with the bodies and breathing through snorkels. They got word back that it was possible to use this way for the flight. On the evening at 10.30 pm the lover locks was fully opened, releasing more bodies which helped to hide the minisub when it got to crucial areas further down stream [on it's way to pick up the Hitler party].

At 11 pm on 30 April 1945, the Hitlers (Adolf and Eva) and aides, was kayaked through the tunnels to the open lower locks.
They then, at 11.30 pm got into a WK202 mini-sub (36,5 m long), who 11.40 pm submerged and waited. Later at 11.55 pm 30 April, 1945, just as the night sky was lit by flares from battles over the top of them from either bank, they motored out into the current for their journey downriver. Then, at 1.00 am 1 May 1945, five Hitler doubles were shot with state sanctioned 10,5 mm bullets on top of the bunker.

The alleged dead body of Hitler
Yet another Hitler double had been killed 10 hours earlier down below and carried outside for burning. This one is commonly referred to as 'the dead Hitler'. Hitler then waited for a day-and-half in the mini-sub, who was hiding under the shadow of Schwanenwerder* penisula in Lake Havel. * Some high Nazi officials, as Armament Minister Albert Speer, had summer houses here.

Hanna Reitsch
Hanna Reitsch then landed at the lake. Hanna Reitsch was a most famous, female testpilot during the Nazi regim. One of her major feats was to get alive from testflying a manned version of Hitlers V1-flying bomb.

An Junkers JU52/3m aircraft on floats
An Junkers JU52/3m aircraft on floats with an Junkers JU52/3m g14e, at afternon 4.15 pm May 2, 1945. The flaps was opened and a ladder lowered. The mini-sub then rose up under the Junkers aircraft. Hallet uses the word 'opened', indicating he's not fully familiar with aviation vocabulary. Vingflaps are primarily used to get a lower flight speed, resulting in a shorter landing-and take-off distance. The usual terminology regards flaps is ´deployment´ or 'take out/in' flaps. The Hallett information that the flaps was ´opened', i.e. deployed after landing, is proably wrong, as flaps always are taken out before landing, not after. Hallet seems also be wrong regarding the laddern. As can be seen on the above picture, the ladder is fastened rigid on this type of aircraft. Possibly Hallett mean that yet another ladder was used to reach the minisub. Hitler and Eva, Braun, then climbed up the conning tower of the WK202 mini-sub, onto the ladder, and into the plane, protected* from any stray bullets by the flaps. They left the lake at 4.24 pm 2 May, 1945. Hallett has a direct incorrect view regarding this. The flaps of the JU 52 were made out of very thin aluminium sheets, which can't give any protection from bullets. Possibly, the flaps instead helped to hinder anyone seeing the bordering of passengers from the mini-sub.

They flew 15 minutes east of Berlin to Lake Muggelsee (31 km in a direct line) and were met by former Op JB (James Bond), Commander Ian Fleming in an acquired motorlaunch (A type of smaller boat, normally used for transport of seamen to and from a ship at anchor.) and dressed as a Russian Officer, having left Op JB about 19 hours prior.

Hitler then gave Fleming his papers, got into the launch and was transported to shore. Fleming only ever referred to Adolf and Eva Hitler as 'Mr Rabbit'and 'Mrs Rabbit'.
Westland Lysander IIIA aircraft
They got into a Westland Lysander IIIA aircraft, Serial No. V9673, flown by Hugh Verity DSO** DFC**, who had been waiting for 14 hours, since 2 am, 2 May 1945. The plane had been covered with branches.. The Lysander took only one passenger, or at most two in a cramped solution. It's therefore probable that this aircraft was included in the flight, only to facilitate free passage thru the allied anti-aircraft barriers. The passengers were most likely transported in the larger Junker. The English have an certain affection for titles and medals, incl. military. DSO stands for ´Distinguished Service Order´ and DFC for ´Distinguished Flying Cross´.
Ian Fleming had placed a time-release bomb on the launch and soon after they lifted off, the motorboat exploded. This is the origin of the James Bond books and films – leaving with the woman and everything exploding behind them. Hitler was the orginal James Bond character*.
* Hallett probably doesen't mean that Hitler personified the hero James Bond, but instead only that he was the first who personified the situation in the end scenery. Something that later became a standing theme in every end-scenery of the James Bond books/films. Hanna Reitsch, in her Junkers JU52/3m g14e, flew [together] with the Lysander* , both of them to just outside Barcelona, Spain, arriving around 3 am at night and..
* The Lysander aircraft was used by England for secret courier flights and other operations behind enemy lines. The use of aircraft from both Nazigermany and England in this operation, was probably only made to facilitate free passage through both the allied and Nazi anti-aircraft barriers.

PART TWO -Operation James Bond

The Rescue of Martin Bormann

This operation saved Martin Bormann [secretary of Hitler and at the war end Nazi-Germanys most powerful man]. Bormann was Reich Chancellor and controlled the financial assets of Nazi-Germany [for instance in neutral countries as Swizerland and Sweden]. Operation James Bond was originally captained by Ian Fleming. Later, at 9.50 pm on May 1, 1945, the operative responsibility went over to John Ainsworth-Davis*, as Fleming took over command of Op. Winnie the Pooh [the rescue of Hitler].
Martin Bormann in his heydays
John Ainsworth-Davis, [the personator for James Bond] took over responsibility for Op. James Bond, which saved Bormann out of Berlin. Today, John Ainsworth-Davis uses the name Chris Creighton.. The rescue was initiated by Martin Bormann leaving the bunker, at 8.40 pm 1 May, 1945. . The date of May 1 is interesting as it is also the day the subversive Illuminate order was formed in 1776, under the slogan freedom, equality, brotherhood, i.e. the same holy day and the same holy slogan, that all socialist/ communist/Marxist movements, still to this day honour. The date indicate that the fall of Berlin and rescue of Hitler and Bormann, was an Illuminate operation, with the John Ainsworth-Davis date intentionally set to May 1
Painting of an famous commando-operation – the Frankton raid.
The flight out of the war-ridden Berlin, was [as in the case of Hitler] partly accomplished by kayaks..

They kayaked downstream during the night and camped during the day at Wannsee [south-west of Berlin] near Pfaueninsel Island (Peacock Island)..They left Wannsee again on May 2, 1945, thereafter Bormann was taken over to England. Due to Ainsworth-Davis, Bormann then did live under another identity in England, to later move to Paraguay where he died in 1959. For a more detailed information regarding the rescues of Hitler and Bormann, the following books is recommended. All three of these books is by 'natural' reasons supressed and can't be found in the shelves of bookstores.
“OPBJ – The Last Great secret Of The Second World War”, bv Christopher Creighton. The book can possibly be bought at: or found on the net..“Hitler Was A British Agent”, by Greg Hallett. This and other of Hallett's books can be ordered directly from the author at: “Architects Of deception”, by Juri Lina. The book gives you the deeper insight to understand why Hitler was saved out of Berlin by Winston Churchill, one of his 'main enimies`:
