One day that year, when the base went on 24-hour lockdown due to nearby weapons testing, [[Sergeant]] Wycroft, who hated the desert, was left in charge of four men, including [[Higgins|Corporal Higgins]] and [[Mitchell|Private Mitchell]], at the front gate to keep out unauthorized personnel. Watching a [[1932 Ford roadster]] race against the lead car of an Army convoy after grounding an [[scorpion]] under his boot heel, Wycroft bet on the roadster, while Higgins bet on the Army vehicle. Knowing the roadster's engine, Wycroft won the bet and collected Higgins' money.<ref name="IJatKotCS Novel" /> As the Army convoy arrived at the gates, Wycroft and the other MPs left the guard station to approach the front car. Leaning in to the passenger side of the lead car, he let the guests know about the lockdown. After one of his men saluted "[[Antonin Dovchenko|Colonel Truman]]", walking from another vehicle, Wycroft began to repeat the orders regarding the base closure. However it turned out the "Truman" and all of his men were a group of [[Soviet Special Forces]] in disguise. They gunned down Wycroft and his men, and dragged their bodies away from the guard house.<ref name="IJatKotCS" /> Summary: Please note that all contributions to the Indiana Jones Wiki are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://indianajones.fandom.com/wiki/Jimmy_Wycroft"
