Müller surveyed the scene from his vantage point on the corner of the street.
He was in the town of Harrogate in England. His mission was to send ground reports to Berlin using his transmission device.
Not too many people were about that day in the otherwise busy town, and there was an eerie calm. They knew that the Battle of Britain had begun… a battle that would seal the fate of their nation.
Later that evening, Müller sent an urgent email to his editor in Berlin. People had voted in favour of Brexit.
Author’s note: This is a picture of the spa town of Harrogate in North Yorkshire. Quiet streets, brick houses and dull weather – this is quintessential small-town England.
