Joe and Eddie Eastwood
Joe Eastwood was a Green Howard.  He was evacuated from Dunkirk and went on to serve in North Africa where he was captured and spent two or more years in an Italian Prison camp before escaping in Sept 44. Joe's younger brother Eddie and George Tinson were school boy pals and they both tried to enlist in 1937.  George was too young, and his mother refused to sign the necessary papers to allow him to  join up, so Eddie went in on his own and George joined later. Photographs and information kindly supplied by Joe's son John Eastwood.
