Captured WWII pilot's model Lancaster Bomber is discovered





A remarkable model of a Lancaster Bomber made by a captured British pilot from blocks of wood, matches and bits of tin can has been discovered in a house clearance.

The pilot, known only as E Taylor, made the Second World War model while being held prisoner at the Stalag Luft III camp in Poland, immortalised in the film The Great Escape.

It is being auctioned together with a diary of Taylor's time in the camp, in which detailed his arrival.
