Colonel Toots Williams

This short account of a ‘walk’ by three young Captains of The Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry, with Captain Ian Shaw of the Green Howards, in September and October 1943, from a prisoner of war camp in northern Italy back to Allied Forces in southern Italy demonstrates the determination of young soldiers captured during World War II not to accept imprisonment if means could be found to escape from captivity.
