Supper Meeting with a Thame hero
Wed 16th January 2013
Arthur Staggs, honorary Citizen of Thame, gave a talk to the club.
A Thame man who secretly operated behind enemy lines in occupied France during the Second World War was the guest of the Rotary Club of Thame.
Arthur Staggs was part of a team responsible for disrupting Nazi supply lines and at one point spent two months in captivity after being betrayed.
He spent two months in prison, during which he was tortured at times, but says his captors never got any useful information out of him before his release.
