|NOTES & SOURCES
Family contact (daughter Linda)
“He always spoke most fondly of Austria and the Austrian people, so it was quite amazing when Hildegard eventually tracked us down in 2015. Dad was happy man and always made the most of life. He spoke a lot about his war years, luckily for us, although mainly in a light-hearted way. I am sure he suffered like so many of the men, but he used to say, “we were all fighting for our country in the way we were told”. He never spoke badly of the Germans even though he must have found four years as a POW totally unbearable for a man who always liked his freedom.”
