A group of 50 British air force officers are marching in Poland to commemorate a daring escape during the Second World War.
The officers are marching from the site of a Nazi prisoner-of-war camp to a cemetery in western Poland to mark the 70th anniversary of the Great Escape.
The story was told in Australian writer Paul Brickhill’s memoir of the escape. It was made into a movie in 1963.
The book and movie were dedicated to “the fifty.”
