F/Lt. Anthony Graham Sadler
Royal Air Force 100 Sqd
My father Anthony Sadler piloted EE183, a Lancaster Bomber, out of RAF Waltham/Grimsby on July 12 1943. They were shot down after returning from a bombing raid on the Turin railyards.
Dad crash landed EE183 on a German airfield near Brest. The crew all survived but all were wounded. Dad first was taken to a Luftwaffe hospital in Paris, 14/7/1943 to 18/8 /1943. After a month he was sent to:
Stalag Luft 1 Barth 23/8/1943 to 1/11/1943 then
Stalag Luft 6 Hyderkrug 4/11/1943 to 10/4/1944 then
Stalag Luft 3 Sargan 13/4/1944 to 28/1/1945 then after the Long March
Stalag Luft 3 Tarmstedt 3/2/1945 to 7/4/1945
Shortly after this he returned to the UK.
I have no information on anyone who knew Tony in Stalag Luft 3 or on the Long March. Any information gratefully received.
