Company innkeeper

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Gastwirt company was an aborted German defense plan that was worked out in the autumn of 1941 to smuggle two Irish defense agents into the London area for a major sabotage operation against important defense objectives .

One of the two agents was John Codd, an Irish national who was captured while serving in the British Army in 1940. During the radio and sabotage training for the Gastwirt company, the plan was canceled because German efforts to recruit even more suitable Irish people failed. The training took place in the Friesack camp .
