Part 1 of the P-47 poem written by Raymond "Moose" Moulton at Stalag Luft III in 1944. The scanned page was taken from a logbook written by my father, 2LT Robert G. Presley. He was downed by flak on a mission to Berlin in May of 1944. This and one other poem by Moose were also passed on to the Stalag Luft III website in order to provide a wider dissemination of POW's talent under duress.

These poems I came across in a logbook kept by my father, 2LT Robert G Presley, from his stay in Stalag Luft III in 1944/45.
