The Escape from Lincoln Jail
(The War of Independence V)





Last weeks episode looked at the story of the Soloheadbeg Ambush, often considered the opening shots of the war. A few weeks later one of the most audacious IRA operations of the entire war took place in England. This saw three high profile republican prisoners attempt a daring escape from Lincoln Jail . Following on from the Soloheadbeg ambush if successful it would serve as a stunning propaganda coup for the republican movement. However it was fraught with risk and danger.
