    New here been reading about for some time now

    Was at a junk store and came across a green jacket that has on it ..

    " Former Prisoners Of War..50th ...Stalag Luft 111''

    Of all the thing to give to a junk store.. :confused:

    These are the cowboys who gave the Germans so much trouble..

    Any info on Stalag Luft 111 ?

    To bad the jacket is to small to fit me .. I wonder who's it was ..?

    Thanks

    David

    Are those the guys that built the glider? If it was, they were clever as hell.
