World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII

208828

Pte. Sydney Suffield

British Army Essex Regiment

from:Manor Park, London

My uncle Sid Suffield spent time in Annaburg POW camp (Stalag 4d). Previously he had been held by the Italians after being captured somewhere near Tobruck. When the Italians surrendered the prisoners were told by the officers to stay in the camp, the next day the Germans arrived and took them all to Germany. Towards the end of the war uncle Sid woke up one morning to find the German guards gone. Rather than hang about this time Sid and a friend left the camp and made their way towards Allied Lines. After the war Sid lived in Wales. Unfortunately, he died in 2010 at a rather grand age.
