Thank you ever so much for emailing me back and passing on my details. The more I find out about Marbury the more amazing it seems. I was born in the middle of the 1980s so only know the park as it is today. I find the more images that seem to come to light the more fantastic life looked living there. If any other images crop up please could you let me know and I will also do the same. Thanks ever so much. Kind Regards, Nathan Rathbone
Thank you for this I have let Nathan know that Bert Trautmann the famous Manchester City goalkeeper of the 1950s & 60s was held at Marbury p.o.w. camp for a while. Regards, Peter Frank
