During World War 2, 1943 + 1944, a 'Winnie Cliff' from Tunstall, Stoke on Trent listened to German radio broadcasts, and where news of allied POW's were mentioned she would write to the families informing them about their relations. This on many occasions was the first the families knew if their men were alive.
The collection includes 41 letters of reply from the families, mainly RAF bomber crews, and tell of their thanks for the letters.
Also included are 3 photographs of the lady from that time.
A fascinating story and worth bringing back to life.

UXB HELP WANTED
I'm trying to compile a list of Wartime bombs unearthed in the UK since 1960, 'Year', 'Month', 'type of bomb' etc. Perhaps you may have local newspapers mentioning UXB these.
I will list on my Still finding them page. I've already updated one incident at Becton gas works in 1996 which lead to 33 regt Royal Engineers receiving 3 QGM to those involved which I will be writing a more detailed account of this incident.
