By 1945, with the end in sight for the Germans, Donald was moved from one camp to another, eventually being liberated by fellow Scots from the Fife Yeomanry.

"It was unbelievable. They were accompanied later by the Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders. They asked us if any of the German guards had maltreated us. This one guard, Herman, had shot two of our people dead, so we told the Argyle Highlanders so they chased him up to the woods. Then we heard this 'trrrr! trrr!' and Herman was no more.

"It was one of those things that happened in war. Sadly not legal, but that was how it was."
