What important clues were hidden in the German question paper?
OrWhat clues did the answer-sheet of Evans provide to the Governor?
There was a photocopied sheet hidden in the German question paper. It was very cleverly pasted on the last blank sheet of the question paper. It had instructions written in German. It read: “Follow the plan. The vital point in time is three minutes before the end of the examination.” It was also instructed not to hit the parson hard, he is a minister and not to over do the Scot accent etc. It had also instruction to move towards the Headington round about and then to make way to Newsbury. The Governor coded it for Newsbury and the hunt for Evans started.
