My father Harold R. Carlson was a POW from sometime in the fall of 1944
until 1945. I know he talked some about staying on a farm working for a
farmer, but he would not say much more than that about his time as a
POW. He was part of Co. B 60th Inf. I'm not sure where he was captured.
Any information would be appreciated.

Dad was shot down on Oct 8, 1943 over the gulf of Corinth in Greece.
They had just bombed the Athens Eleusis airdrome. Dad flew with the
321st Bomb Group out of North Africa. They flew the famous B-25 bomber.
Dad's stay at Luft I began in November of'43 and ended in '45 with
repatriation due to wounds from the downing of his aircraft. Dad was an
artist before the war and so was able to bring back a lot of drawings of
fellow prisoners back with him. I have these in my possession. Dad's CO
was General Robert Knapp. Dad's wingman Joel Hartmeister was also shot
down right before Dad got it. They were flying against the "elite"
pilots of Jagdgeschwader 27, some of whom were approaching the 3 figure
amount of planes shot down. Dad passed away in 1994 at the age of 79.
His fondest memories were of flying his beloved B-25 while not in
combat. Just a little info. Keep up the good work and let's keep the
history going. James
