Letters Home from Stalag VIIIb

“In May 1940, my leave was cancelled and I was called for training, at St Mary’s Bay, Kent, in the use of a new anti tank gun. My first letter home is from there. On 21st May, our unit of Irish guards were travelling back to our base when we were stopped and turned around at Dorking, Surrey. We were being sent to France. These are my letters home from May 1940 onwards.”
