Some interesting information has been passed to me by a WW2 researcher in the Netherlands. It concerns the experience of a member of this family - John Vincent Hulley - who, whilst a Prisoner of War in Stalag 8B camp hut 344, exchanged his identity with a fellow prisoner who had been shot down in the Netherlands in order to escape with two of his colleagues from the Australian Air Force. The information consisted of a copy of a grubby note with John's name on it presumably written at the time of the planned escape. I have yet to establish whether the plan succeeded. Full details are shown in his Notes.
