Prisoner of War Spoon


Thomas C. Farrow used this large aluminum spoon while a prisoner of war imprisoned at Stalag Luft IV from July 1944 to February 1945. The spoon is engraved with the Luftwaffe insignia on the handle. The camp was evacuated 5 February 1945, and the prisoners were forced to march for 86 days covering 600 miles. Tom Farrow survived this brutal, forced march and eventually returned home to Delaware.
