An amazing story - the British POW who was allowed to go home to see his mother, as long as he promised to come back to the camp afterwards.

In the second world war, trusted Italian POW's in South Wales worked on farms all week and went into Abergavenny to the pictures on a Saturday night. Any of them who was determined to escape could probably have at least got away from South Wales, if not Britain itself.

I remember my granddad (mum's dad) telling me about the PoW camps for captured German Navy sailors (he was a Royal Navy Lieutenant during the war).  Many of the German officers captured were given quite extensive freedoms and went unsupervised as long as they reported back for the morning roll call each day.  He said there were a few masochists who saw it as their duty to escape and didn't want the freedoms, they stayed locked up in a proper prison.

They've just been covering this story on the World Service and it turns out the end of that story isn't quite right. Upon his return, deeming his promise fulfilled, he then devoted himself fully to escape plans.  :D

 

He got out, but was recaptured on the Netherlands border and was sent to another camp, where he remained until the end of the war.

Saw this bloke in the paper shop this morning. He's over for a short holiday from the States, staying with his brother who lives on my street.

I have spent the last few days at Canet. No sign of Canetman. Plenty of sun and sand though. I'm now a bit pink. Back to work tomorrow. Merde.

I am outraged.

 

Either that, I understand how such things can happen.

I wonder how many people who complained about "Big Brother" government ID schemes will get the new iPhone 5S and voluntarily contribute towards creating the worlds largest fingerprint database...
