Angus may a british Navigator in the Royal Air force, was taken prisoner after a four day walk, after his plane was forced to crash land in the desert of libya. May and his fellow men were captured by an armored divsion under German field commander Erwin Rommel. May, and his fellow allied prisoners were transfered to Stalag VIII-B near lansdorf which is now Poland. The German captors forced the allied prisoners to march to other prison camps to prevent liberation. alot of prisoners didnt make it through these marches, falling due to hunger and exhaustion. May kept strong during this tough as the months grew long. Eventually May was able to escape, and now today he resides in Arlington with his wife betty.
