This talk starts with a letter, given to Radley History Club, that was written by Squadron Leader Charles Lockett to his wife who was living in Radley. The Lockett family were originally from Cheshire. It was sent in 1942 while he was a prisoner of war in Colditz Castle. For Christine it was the start of several years of very interesting research leading to the publication of two books with many coincidences on the way. In the course of her research she was able to also find out about the story of his brother Peter who was a prisoner of war in Stalag Luft III, Zagan, of the ‘Great Escape’ fame.
