POWs revisit Great Escape tunnels

Two WWII veterans who took place in the Great Escape have gone back to see the tunnels they helped construct.

Standing at the entrance to the 111-yard shaft, on the site of the notorious Stalag Luft III camp in Poland, widower Gordie’s eyes filled with tears.

The former radio operator said: “It has been such an emotional time for me.

“This brings back such ­bittersweet ­memories. I’m amazed by what they found.”

Frank added: “I’m thrilled by it all.”
