John Pope - Sent to Gestapo headquarters
We were taken to a Gestapo headquarters in Nordhausen and the instruction to prisoners of war, is they said escaping is no longer a sport. They actually put that on the posters and warned that any attempted escapees amongst the British forces would be shot, you know, a big poster.
Anyway we were as I say recaptured by these guards and we were taken into this headquarters of the Gestapo and the first thing we were marched into this quadrangle , "Why weren't these men shot?" and anyway…we hadn't been shot obviously.
