RAF makes Great Escape, the sequel

A group of Scots RAF officers have recreated one of history’s most famous breakouts which was immortalised by film star Steve McQueen in The Great Escape.

Flight Lieutenant Mikey Robertson, who grew up in Stirlingshire, was one of six officers selected to travel to Stalag Luft III PoW camp and re-enact the escape of allied prisoners during the Second World War.

The team used records and artefacts for reference and were guided by original prisoners of war in the new escape attempt in the ruins of the German camp — via redwolf.newsvine.com
