Jack Osborn (centre) on a postcard which he sent to his mother in February 1943. He enlisted on the 16th May 1939 and was posted to the Queen's 131st Surrey Brigade. He was taken prisoner at St Valery en Caux around the 16th June 1940, and spent most of his captivity in Stalag XXA, working in a forest and looking after a bullock cart and piercing the lids of tins of milk destined for the Eastern front. He spent some time on bread and water in solitary for such low level sabotage. He participated in the Long March of 1945 and passed away in 1980, in Adelaide. Copyright: John Osborn.
