My Great Uncle was a regular in the D.L.I. and was a member of the B.E.F. He was captured at Wavre, marched to Maastricht and then transported to Breslau (Wroklaw) and on to Stalag 8b Lambsdorf (Lambinowice) where he remained until he was liberated. I researched the route and in 2000 I retraced his journey, starting in his birth place, Murton, County Durham I then traveeled to Dunkirk and walked from there to Maastricht. I travelled by train to Wroklaw and then walked to the site of the P.O.W. camp at Lambinowice in Poland, which is now a museum. This was all part of a photography/video project sponsered by Northern Arts. I shot nearly 2000 35mm slides of the trip.
