'Great Escape' prison camp veterans
#1

British PoW veterans retracing the route of a death march that claimed hundreds of Allied lives in 1945 are on the move again today after spending the night in the same barns that gave them shelter from the biting cold 65 years ago.

 

Instead of the link to the site, I am uploading as a PDF file because the print on their site is like 8 point. It's so tiny, it's painful. This is much easier to read.

 

Thanks for the link Jim Hennessey!
