My father, Charles Osborne Leech was taken at Dunkirk and spent the whole of the war in Stalag 8b. He was from Liverpool and was with the King’s Regiment. Sadly, he died, aged 49, in 1968. He kept a kind of scrap book which included details of Red Cross parcels, some poetry and some calligraphy but I have no idea what happened to it.
If anyone has any memories of him, I would love to get in contact. Here is a picture of him in 1945 on his wedding day to my mother, Lilian, who also died in 2001.
