"Squadron Leader Bartlett, if you escape again and are captured, you will be shot."
Kuhn was a Gestapo agent who was the associate of Preissen. He was with him when they brought Roger Bartlett to Stalag Luft III, and Kuhn warned Bartlett there'd be dire consequences if he escaped. Kuhn didn't live to see this come to pass. After Bartlett and several other prisoners escaped, Kuhn recognized Bartlett at a train station. As he stepped forward to arrest him, Bartlett's friend Eric Ashley-Pitt attacked him from behind. Kuhn tried to pull his gun, but Ashley-Pitt forced the Gestapo agent to shoot himself with it, before he himself was killed by nearby SS officers.
