It was knitted by Jim Simpson when he was a prisoner of war in Germany during the second world war (is that supposed to be in capitals?). On arrival at the camp he was warned that the German guards would take his new naval pullover from him and send it to the Russian front, so he went to the loo and unravelled it! And that was the beginning of the quilt. Jim is the quintessential digger, he retains his humour through adversity and he has some great stories to tell.
