STALLAG LUFT III PORTFOLIO

“THE GREAT ESCAPE – THE FOLIO DRAWINGS

To further Commemorate this famous escape attempt, we are pleased to announce a highly restrictive Folio set by Richard Taylor featuring 76 pairs of limited edition Graphite proofs in memory of the 76 men that managed to escape the camp.

THE RAILWAY
A tiny wooden railway, operated with rope-pulled trolleys, was constructed along the entire length of the tunnel Harry to carry men and equipment, and remove earth. On the night of March 24/25th 1994, it ferried the escaping POWs rapidly through the tunnel to the exit shaft.

Each Print has been personally hand signed by:
Flight Lieutenant JACK LYON

COMING UP SHORT

As the first POWs break through to the surface from the tunnel Harry on the night of March 24/25th 1944, the dreadful realization is made that the exit has come up 10 feet short of the woods surrounding Stalag Luft III.

Each print has been personally hand signed by:
Wing Commander KEN REES
