THE RAILWAY & COMING UP SHORT
The Great Escape
A pair of folio drawings - only available as a matching-numbered pair!
Exclusively limited to 76 pairs in memory of the 76 men who managed to escape the camp!
A tiny wooden railway, operated with rope-pulled trolleys, was constructed along the entire length of the tunnel Harry to carry men and equipment, and remove earth. On the night of 24/25 March 1944 it ferried the escaping POWs rapidly through the tunnel to the exit shaft.
Coming Up Short
As the first POWs break through to the surface from the tunnel Harry on the night of 24/25 March 1944, the dreadful realisation is made that the exit has come up 10 feet short of the woods surrounding Stalag Luft III.
The Proofs are individually signed by veterans who, as POWs in Stalag Luft III, played a part in the most memorable escape attempt of World War II.
- Flight Lieutenant Jack Lyon (The Railway)
