Liverpool player POW


Tuesday, June 2 – 1942
George Leadbetter, the Liverpool FC player who, as I announced some time ago, is a prisoner of war in Germany, is apparently in good health and spirits, judging from a card to hand from him this morning. He tells me that in addition to bridge and indoor games to while away the time the improvement in the weather has made football possible (his letter dated March 21). Football results percolate through the POW camps, and he remarks on the progress of Everton and Liverpool.

In case any of his old friends want to write him his address is: G.S. Leadbetter, 1236, M. Stammlager XVIII A.A. 10.049/GW/6. Germany.
