Archibald Sulston's depiction of life in one of huts at Stalag Luft III.<br />
<br />
Tell-tale illustrations of British airmen plotting the famous Great Escape drawn by a prisoner of war at huge risk have come to light.<br />
<br />
The watercolour paintings were kept in a wartime scrapbook by Flight Lieutenant Archibald Sulston, a keen artist who drew and painted life in the PoW - including obvious evidence of a tunnel being dug.<br />
<br />
The album is being sold at auction for £20,000.
