God save the King & **** Hitler


A patriotic prisoner of war stitched up his German captors after they unwittingly displayed his needlework containing the coded message ‘**** Hitler’ in camps where he was held captive.

Major Alexis Casdagli never lost his fighting spirit and developed his own form of resistance, adding the secret messages to his needlework which were never spotted by his Nazi captors.

Pinching red and blue thread from a disintegrating pullover belonging to an elderly Cretan general, Major Casdagli passed the long hours in captivity painstakingly creating the sampler in cross-stitch.
