Tonight you’re going to be meeting one of our country’s heroes. A person that most of us have heard of but very few of us really know that much about.
– Bob Parker, presenter

– Brigadier James Burrows, Upham’s commanding officer in Crete
What the hell is this place? It looks bloody awful to me!
– Charles Upham on arrival at Colitz Castle PoW camp
My abiding memory of Charles Upham in Colditz was his uncompromising attitude to German soldiers and German officers and guards. He indulged in irritating them to good cause.
– Dr Fred Moody, fellow Colditz prisoner
