INCREDIBLY RARE OPPORTUNITY 'Great Escape' Guards helmet.
Items from not only a participant of the legendary WWII ’Great Escape’ but from a significant contributor.
Direct from late Wing Commander Nunn’s estate.
Nunn was the officer charged with calculating the length of the escape tunnel ‘Harry’.
This task proved to be of major significance to the outcome of the whole escape attempt.
His eventual calculation proved to be flawed resulting in the tunnel being famously short & the escape being prematurely discovered.
The rest is now history……………

The documents relate to the final days of the camp and are Nunn's personal copy of the Intelligence transcript.
(His Intelligence liaison officers contact details are penciled on the reverse)
The helmet was abandoned at the camp as the Luftwaffe guards were fearful that the advancing Russian army would mistake them for defensive troops.
They instead opted to wear only cloth forage caps as they left the camp & retreated.
The helmet was then brought back to England with Nunn himself.
