Jens and the other chap made it home to Norway?
Does that mean that there were 6 instead of 3 home runs from Stalag Luft III ?
No, there were only three. Muller and fellow RNoAF pilot, Per Bergsland and Dutch airman, Bram "Bob" Van der Stok.
so, that still makes the escape from OFLAG VB with 4 home runs the top escape in WW2.
I will continue with my book about this escape in 2019 and hope to finish in 2021 with the English version.
Not so sure about that....unless you're referring to only airmen?
Australian L/Cpl Ralph "Crow" Churches and five of his mates escaped from a German work camp in Slovenia, then went back and brought out 95 of their fellow POWs. 100 miles later they were picked up by Dakotas and flown to Bari, Italy.

Thanks for the link, I did not know about this mass escape.
OFLAg VB had no airmen and I referred to escapes from the Deutsches Reich only.
