    A poster that I know from another forum turned me onto this site about his father in law who was interned at Stalag Luft I at Barth. Hope ya'll enjoy it as much as I did.

    Thanks for sharing a good story, diddyriddick.
    When I was unable to work because of injury, I stayed in a public-run care facility for more than half a year. A set of old laptop PC saved my spirit from rotting.

    Yes, it is.

    As an aside, maybe ya'll can help me out...I'm trying to find more info on Clair Cline for my friend, and have hit a brick wall so far. The information I have so far is:

    He served with the 448th Bomb Group which was stationed in Seething, UK from December, 1943 to July, 1945. 1st Lt. Clair W. Cline, serial #O746302 from Minnesota was first reported as a POW on February 21, 1944.

    Any ideas on where to go from here?
