Caption

Acknowledgement Cheryl White (niece to Ian Lowman). Scan of thumbnail sized photograph given by German prisoners of war in Africa after the fall of Tunis. In Ian’s memoirs he writes "With the fall of Tunis

242 Squadron moved forward without delay to an airfield vacated by the Germans and not far from the city. It was my lot

as a junior pilot

to move with the ground party. On the way we drove past a wire enclosure containing a troop of green clad German prisoners. Their war was over."
