|My late father, Maurice MacLean, was a Gordon Highlander captured at St Valery. After nearly five years labouring in mines and estates in Silesia, he somehow survived the Long March in Spring 1945 despite the childhood. polio that affected one leg. He went on to inspire thousands of children in his career in primary school teaching in Tealing and Forfar, and remains a heroic figure within his family. Like others in this blog, he was persuaded to write down his memories, and that text entitled ‘Prisoner of the Reich’ is available through the Gordon Highlanders Museum.
