Allied prisoners of war plan for several hundred of their number to escape from a German camp during World War II.
In the scene following Hilts' theft of a German motorcycle, he rolls into a nearby town, and stopped by a police officer. He tells Hilts something in German, to which Hilts kicks him away and rides off. The officer asked Hilts for identification papers Hilts doesn't have.
You know, he's right. he's right. I really shouldn't go. My eyes have been getting worse and worse. I think they call it progressive Myopia. I can see things up here.
Colin: yes I can see it well, but, you're just a blur.
Hendley: I know. Ah, Hell, we'll make it in...
The motorcycle that Hilts uses in his escape attempt was a 1960s British Triumph 650.
