He then escaped and then made it over the alps to Adelboden in Switzerland. Whilst in Adelboden, he met Bill Rudd [Australia], helping to level out the tennis courts for a large hotel. He eventually was repatriated to Britain in October 44. After the war Frank lived in London, a driver for Esso Petroleum Company, including deliveries to Buckingham Palace. Frank Bargh, Cpl Rasc.

Hugh Buchanan "Jimmy" MacPhee (Stalag IXC) (advert placed 27/11/17)

I am currently researching my Grandfather who was captured and kept at Stalag IX-C. Date of birth 10/07/06, he was in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. He was from Stontian but would have been married in Acharacle when the war broke out. He was known for reasons unknown as "Jimmy" - not sure if this was also the case in his war years. We have postcards he sent my Granny and he is in the attached photo. Nicola Thomson, neacag@gmail.com
