Old Comrade in Arms
“The Universe works by connecting all things throughout time and space. This is due to all dimensions of space being created and sustained by the vast ocean of quantum foam that "is" the real part of the whole. As my epic journey of the discovery of my life as Robert Magaw unfolded in the summer of 2013 I was in for a wonderful quantum surprise reunion. I had already met my brother Dr William Magaw as was, now Brent Reidenbach face to face in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. That was a momentous occasion but there was another in store.
It was the weekend of the Devizes Summer Crop Circle Lectures at the tail end of July. I had already just visited my first crop circle at Hackpen Hill - the astounding Dreamcatcher the day before. After hanging out at the Silent Circle cafe on the Friday morning I received a text from my good friend Lyriana who had flown in from the States that very morning.”
Von Knyphausen is Marshall Milch
Erhard Milch (30 March 1892 – 25 January 1972) was a German Field Marshal who oversaw the development of the Luftwaffe as part of the re-armament of Nazi Germany following World War I. During World War II, he was in charge of aircraft production. He was convicted of war crimes during the Milch Trial held before the U.S. military court in 1947 and sentenced to life imprisonment; he was released in 1954.
Milch was born in Wilhelmshaven, the son of Anton Milch, a Jewish pharmacist who served in the Imperial German Navy, and Clara Milch, née Vetter. The Gestapo would later investigate Milch due to his Jewish heritage. In 1935 rumours began to circulate that his father was a Jew. The Gestapo began an investigation that was halted by Hermann Göring, the Luftwaffe commander-in-chief, who produced an affidavit by Milch's mother that his true father was her uncle Karl Brauer. Milch was then issued with a German Blood Certificate. This would mean that his mother Clara admitted not only to adultery but also incest. David Irving in his book The Rise and Fall of the Luftwaffe. The Life of Field Marshal Erhard Milch, says that Milch asked him not to reveal the real truth about his parentage, so although Irving states that it was not Anton Milch and concentrates on his wealthy great-uncle Karl Brauer who died in 1906, he does not actually name him as his father. However, Irving, who had access to the Field Marshal's private diary and papers, says the rumours began in the autumn of 1933, and that Erhard personally obtained a signed statement by Anton Milch that he was not the father of Clara's children. Furthermore, Irving says that Clara Milch had already written to her son in law Fritz Herrmann in March 1933 explaining the circumstances of her marriage and that Göring had initiated his own investigation that identified his real father. Milch was again questioned about his alleged Jewish father and Göring's role in this matter by Robert H. Jackson at Nuremberg in 1946.
Milch was sentenced to life imprisonment at Landsberg prison. His sentence was commuted to 15 years imprisonment in 1951, but he was released in June 1954. He lived out the remainder of his life in Düsseldorf, where he died in 1972.
A New Revelation
In 2013 Matthias was passing thorough Hythe, Kent on the way to the ferry in Dover. So I took him to the Britannia, Dungeness for some lunch.
