Life in the Welsh Guards
Sydney Pritchard Other books by Sydney Pritchard
This book, the memoirs of a Welsh Guardsman's Second World War experiences, was compiled by the late Sydney Pritchard. The author left his home in Aberdare in 1939 after enlisting with the Welsh Guards. He recalls the heroic defense of Boulogne, the terrible Death Marches and the insecurity of life as a prisoner of war. He also tells his story of moving from camp to camp and recounts managing to hide German photographs, including one of Hitler, which he kept and is published here. Sydney Pritchard was lucky to come back alive, and returned to Aberdare full of hatred and joy. He later made his home in Aberystwyth.
