Much to their surprise, rather than being returned to their squadron in England, they were interned for having violated Ireland's neutral airspace. After an unusual interrogation at the hands of the Local Defence Force, the two Canadian flyers wre transferred to a makeshift prison camp in County Kidare - right next to a similar camp for German prisoners. There they found themselves subject to a surreal honour system that allowed them da ily parole away from their internment camp - free to golf, meet women, and drink beer - without supervision. This system forbid escape when they were on parole but bound them, as RAF officers, to attempt to do so upon their return to camp."
