Does anyone know if a list of Stalag Luft 3 POWS exists which identifies which ones were housed together?



S/Sgt. Racine Black 94th Bomber Group

I just read the story on this website of the crash landing of the B-17 called Little Sir Echo in England. My uncle was Racine Black the waist gunner. My aunt Wanda Shults was married to him and she is still living in Okemah, Oklahoma. I would love to get more history on my uncle and his crew of Little Sir Echo.

I've know Sidney A. Mandel, Bombardier, 331st Bombardment Squadron, for almost 40 years. He is one of my real-life heroes. He will celebrate his 90th birthday in March.
