Letters between the Horne Family & Georg Haupt

CCHS has received transcriptions of letters, written from 1948 until 1962 between the enquirer’s grandparents, Andrew and Kathleen Horne, and Georg Haupt,  a Romanian Prisoner of War, who had worked in their garden in Moreton-in-Marsh with another POW Michael Arz, while imprisoned at Bourton-on-the-Hill POW Camp No. 157.

Several letters from POW Camp No. 186, Fornham Park, Bury St Edmunds, where Georg and Michael were awaiting their repatriation, express their gratitude for the Horne family’s kindness, the happy times they had with them in their home in Moreton-in-Marsh, working in their garden and ask after all members of the family, ‘grandmother’, ‘the old man’, ‘three sisters’, Tom and his wife and baby, the children Bridgit and Jim.
