A meeting at the border
Dalibor Plšek, an officer of the border guard, was out on patrol with another colleague of his, inspecting the border signs and moving along the state border nearby Maxov. They reached a remote area called “U Singra,” where a German peasant had a farm and a little refreshment stand for the occasional visitor. It was a hot July day and two members of the German Grenzpolizei were drinking beer at the stand. They invited their Czechoslovak colleagues to join them. However, as this was contradictory to the regulations, Dalibor refused the invitation of the Germans and continued his work. Nevertheless, the innocent incident had unpleasant implications for him. His colleague informed the counterintelligence service about the incident and Dalibor became suspected because he spoke German. Finally, however, he was able to explain everything.
