Robbie Clark

Royal Artillery & Prisoner of War 1942-45



Robbie Clark’s story is remarkable. After being captured in North Africa in 1942, he endured three years in a Prisoner of War camp before being sent on the 1,000 mile march to central Germany.

Robbie kept a diary which covered every single day of the march; a mentally and physically demanding journey which took place during the coldest winter ever recorded. Some of the prisoners didn’t survive.

Now aged 98, Robbie requires round-the-clock, live-in care. Your donations meant that The Soldiers’ Charity were able to pay towards the costs of a live-in carer, enabling Robbie to stay in the home that he has lived in for over 30 years.

 “I would just like to say, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for the money. You have allowed me now to live my life so happily and so comfortably. I would like to thank all who have helped me, most sincerely.”
