Hello, I wonder if anyone could assist in getting any of my Grandfathers details/records regarding his time in WW2. He was one of the many thousands captured at St Valery in 1940 before being sent to Poland, Stalag XXB. He made a couple of failed escape attempts before finally succeeding on his 3rd. His name was William John Milne and he served in the 5th battalion Gordon Highlanders (51st Highland Division) and his army number was 2880536. I have attached a clipping from a local newspaper which ran a story back in the 70's about 2 local men who escaped from POW camps in WW2, my Grandfather is the second story shown. I'm sure you'll agree it is enjoyable reading, escaping from the Nazis and then being caught by the Red army who thought he was a German soldier. I have visited the site of the old XXB camp back in December 2013, I am travelling back there next week with my Father so he can see the place where his own father was held for 4 years. I hope someone reads this who can perhaps source some records, if so thank you in advance.
