There is an old POW camp in the woods outside of town. sometimes. Thing is¸ it's not always there. The locals try to ignore this strange phenomenon and no one will speak of it. Well¸ no one over the age of about 16¸ but you know what kids are like. When 3 boys from the town vanish after playing in the woods everyone s sure they must have been poking around the old camp when it vanished again!

11. It's In Here With Us!
Several prisoners have gone missing and the guards are convinced that they have escaped but they can't quite figure out how. They are training the camp apart looking for tunnels. Several officers have been taken in for interrogation and several others are in solitary confinement as more prisoners vanish each night. It is only when the guards find the bones of several of the missing prisoners and discover they have been... gnawed upon¸ that it becomes apparent something much worse is going on.
Note:- as I was preparing this product for publication the sad news broke that RAF Squadron Leader Richard Churchill¸ last surviving member of the 'Great Escape' from Stalag Luft III passed away today at the age of 99. I would¸ therefore¸ like to dedicate this product to his memory. Per Ardua ad Astra Squadron Leader.
