If you send me your snail mail address, I will forward you the information 
which I have on "The Red
Fox" which is an extract from the Daily Mail dated  August 1st 2001.  I 
have the book: "Colditz:
the Definitive History" on which this extract was a summary.

I will also send you information on his equally courageous brother, 
Lieutenant Colonel Christopher
Sinclair who was awarded two Military Crosses whilst serving in the Western 
Desert with the Rifle
Brigade.  He died earlier this year at the age of 85.

We also had two Major Generals serving in World War II.  Major General 
David Boyd Alexander
Sinclair  C.B. and Major General George Brian 'Gus' Sinclair C.B., C.B.E. 
who are still alive and
well and in regular correspondence with me on Sinclair related matters.
