Still Waters

A journal written by a prisoner of war who played a part in the true story that inspired the film The Great Escape has been put up for auction.

RAF Flt Lt Vivian Phillips, from Hook, Pembrokeshire, was captured by the Germans after his plane was shot down during the World War Two in 1943.

His journal includes black and white photos of men held in the Stalag Luft III prisoner of war camp in Poland.

Mr Phillips helped inmates escape in tunnels dug in secret.
