A young Grimsby couple have adopted - not a baby - a Prisoner of War in a German prison camp.
Ever since Sgt.-Gunner "Bobby" Aldrick became a prisoner of war in Germany, a year or more ago, he has had regular parcels of "Goodies" sent to him by his parents and friends about town. These he has been in the habit of sharing with his camp buddy, a young Polish flyer, who was taken prisoner about the same time.
In almost every parcel that went to "Bobby" there was something in it from Richard and Mrs. Shafer.
In letters home "Bobby" told about his pal and how he shared every parcel with him as he had no one writing to him or sending him comforts.
From now on Sgt. Funner Jurek Danieteweick of the Polish Air Force will receive a parcel monthly and letters too, for he has been adopted for the duration by "Dick" and "Buddy" Shafer.
