    While searching for other information......I spotted this article on Driver George Newton, RASC.....who seems to have escaped a POW Camp and remained “at liberty” for two years before being re-captured....I’m not sure if anyone has posted on this but his must be an interesting story......

    Escaped from working party attached to Stalag VIIIB, Lamsdorf, and contacted Allied Forces.
