His run took him past a couple of Gasthouses so Jim being Jim called in for a half litre or two. He then decided to return to Barracks and caught the ubahn equivelent to the circle line which goes from east Berlin to West and back again. He nodded off and was woken up by the East Berlin police who , after a bit of a chat let him go . He again fell asleep to be awakened by the same east German Guards at the same place on the next circuit . This time they kept him. I believe his release came after the Brit sector commander made a personal request to his East German counterpart.
