The Tilbury Hotel

My Mum And Sister

Here is a picture taken around 1940/1941 of my Mum May and Sister Shirley sitting on the steps of the Tilbury Hotel.This pictured has survived having been sent to my Uncle Sidney Locke whilst he was a prisoner of war in Germany. He was captured having survived the sinking of the SS Orama by the German navy in June 1940. I have also attached a picture of my uncle whilst he was in the prison camp Stalag X-B.
