Two former German prisoners of war, Hans and Bernard (far left and far right), regularly returned to Hartlepool in later years to visit the farms they worked on - Middle Warren Farm and Storey's Farm - and particularly to see Bobby Storey with whom they were good friends. This photograph, with George Ogle Junior (back), Peggy Ogle (blue dress), and either Hans or Bernard's wife, was taken in August 1987. Both Hans and Bernard made a number of toys for George's daughter Annette, but unfortunately none have survived.More detail »
