They holed up in a barn for a few days but was captured by the Germans and ended up in Stalag XXB.From what I can find out this was the only camp in that area,but I distinctly remember my Mother addressing letters' Nr Konigsburg'.I would appreciate any info on Harry Weeks or just about his unit, no 2 or no 247 motorboat company.Thanks in hope and anticipation I am desperately trying to trace my Grandfather, David Vaughan who died in the Second World War aged 27.
