RIP Robert Frettlohr
Just found out that a friend of mine who served in WW2 passed away this week! Bob was a ww2 German paratrooper who was a POW in England and married a local girl from Wakefield! Here is his story it's a great read! http://www.war-experience.org/collectio ... rticle.pdf
And to top it all off he was one of the first people to play in the famous cavern club before the Beatles! Awesome guy! Sleep well my friend and god bless!
