In 1940 18 year old trainee navigator, Frank Stone, was shot down on his second bombing mission.

He eventually ended up in Sagan StalagLuft III – the camp made renowned in the classic war movie “The Great Escape”. One of the infamous three tunnels, Tom, Dick and Harry, was dug from the hut in which Frank was billeted.
