‘The Homecoming’ – Pencil and Crayon


An amusing sketch in Pencil and Crayon, capturing the mindeset of the Kriegies as they anticipate life after Stalag Luft III. This was a popular theme, and variations of this particular etching appear in the surviving Wartime Logs of both British and US POWs. This work was produced in the North Compound of Stalag Luft III between 1944-45.
