I was recently looking on the British archive newspaper site for anything about my uncle Eric Linforth, who was my dad's sister's husband. Eric was a Warrant Officer in the RAF and a rear gunner on Wellingtons. Although off duty he was called out on a night raid of Tobruk. His plane got into trouble and they had to bail out. Because he was not due to go out Eric did not have his flying boots on and when he landed he broke his ankle. The rest of the crew managed to walk back to the base but Eric was captured by the Italians and handed over to the Germans. He subsequently spent the rest of the war in Stalag IVB. Searching on the newspaper site I came across this article. I wonder if anyone knows if they managed to do any of the plans they discussed or if any one has any connections with other prisoners of war in Stalag IVB Edited by member, 14th Aug 2016 8:02 pm
