He was in Stalag 8b where he took part in a concert of the Mikado, he was one of the three little maids from school we did have a few photos but they were lost.
If anyone remembers him or has any photos of the concert I would love to hear from you. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks My father, Bert Key, was in the Royal Army Medical Corps, and was captured about the time of the Dunkirk evacuation.
There is not much doing here at present, except getting ready for Christmas.
He sent a few quite brief Photostat letters until 25th June 1944, when he reported that he had been in hospital suffering from impetigo, which had cleared up nicely.
My father william Mc Knight became a POW on Crete where he gave himself up as he was ill and the Cretians who were hiding him had no medicine.
Many favoured sitting tight waiting to be liberated.
My uncle Bert was among those who feared that the Russians might well get there before the Allies, and take them into a new captivity.
