¡Hola a todos!
Sería bueno ver si algún otro miembro del foro puede confirmar una u otra versión.
Amigo Fangio, según el libro que ya cité de Mueller, nada de Chile. Te copio el texto en el original de la versión americana:
[Canaris absconded on 5 August 1915. The next two months belong to the mythology of his life and his escapade has been exaggerated beyond reason in the absence of documentation. Many biographies have an eight-month odyssey, in others his disguise held so well that he is portrayed assisting the British naval and port authorities at Plymouth in their examination of his fellow steamer passengers.
The sober words of the official file entry made on 5 October by the Admiralty Staff in Berlin give no real impression of the stress and danger Canaris underwent in those two months on the run:
Oberleutnant Canaris of SMS
Dresden has reported. He absconded from the island of Quiriquina on 4 August 1915 with the consent of the commander and envoy, travelled to Osorno disguised as a peasant, from there crossed the Cordillera on horseback to Neuquen where he took the train to Buenos Aires. Arrival in Buenos Aires 21 August. Reported to attaché, shipped aboard Dutch steamer
Frisia under false Chilean passport, via Montevideo, Santos, Rio, Bahia, Pernambuco, Lisbon, Vigo, Falmouth, Pile, Amsterdam. On 30 September returned home from Amsterdam.
The dangerous journey across South America, the transit of the mountain passes over the Andes and the gruelling passage across Alpine-type highlands for the two hundred miles to Neuquen, all on horseback and in the dead of winter, a thousand miles in a local train from Neuquen to Buenos Aires via Bahia Blanca, the voyage from Argentina to Holland under a false Chilean passport in the name of Reed Rosas, a Chilean widower supposedly travelling to claim an inheritance in Holland left by his English-born mother, all this shows him as an intrepid wanderer and master of disguise] Michael Mueller, Canaris.
