The London Ex-POW Show was put on by Ex-POWs who used perform for us at Sagan. Theatre seats were made from Red Cross packing cases. One of those in the front was the entrance to a tunnel where several items were stored before "The Great Escape" and later recovered.

The German Officers who attended the shows used to sit on the front seats and never knew that they were actually sitting on a tunnel!
