“Elvis Presley made a song famous, called Jailhouse Rock! He may have gotten the idea from this incident! On February 18, 1944, a precise, pinpoint attack from a very low altitude on the jail at Amiens, France took place. Three formations of six Mosquitoes from New Zealand, Australian, and Great Britain squadrons attempted to breach the walls to free the imprisoned French resistance workers.

Twelve of those prisoners had been sentenced to be shot the next day!”
