A SECOND World War veteran and prisoner of war revisited his old school to talk about his very own great escape.
Arthur Barraclough spoke to children on Armistice Day about how he was caught by the Germans, escaped and was re-captured before trying to escape again just as war ended.
Mr Barraclough is pictured back in the classroom at St Aidan's C of E School in Skelmanthorpe, recounting his experiences.
About 30 youngsters from Years 3 and 4 asked him questions about the war.
Class teacher Dorothy Gott said: "He told them what it was like to be a prisoner of war and how he managed to escape."
The children are currently learning about the war, focusing on the life of Winston Churchill.
Mr Barraclough, an accomplished poet, presented the school with a framed poem he had written for his grandson.
