British Prisoner of War Cross Stitch

Created from salvedge and pinched yarn from an old pullover the Major Casdagli managed to cross stitch this wonderful piece of rebellious textiles; had the true message been found by his captors the soldiers life could have been in jeopardy. A wonderful example of gentle resistance – who says textiles can’t be radical and rebellious!
