Bert "Cush" Richings
I was a POW captured at Tobruk. I was always known by the nickname "Cush". I was in PG70 in Italy in a group of 26 until the Italians capitulated and was then taken by the Germans, by cattle truck through the Bremmer Pass, I think, to Stalag 4b, where all our heads were shaved. I was then sent in a party of 50 men to work in a quarry at a village named "Klinga". We 50 men spent the next three years together. I would love to hear from any of those chaps or their relations. I have two good photographs of PG70.
