Unlike Corporal Higgins, Mitchell was new, and thought they should report the unexpected visit of a mysterious American army officer, "Colonel Truman" and his men during the time when he and the other MPs were left on gate duty. Mitchell's fears proved well-founded: the "Americans" were actually disguised Soviet troops. Sergeant Wycroft, after being shot, hoped that Mitchell escaped, but realized that he too had been killed together with the other MPs by the Soviets shortly before expiring himself.
Behind the scenes Edit
In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, no names are given for the policemen on guard. Mitchell's name is only indicated in the film's novelization. It therefore remains unclear whether he is the M.P. in Guard Hut appearing in the film's credits who was played by Kevin Collins.
