Sidney and Florence were living in Guernsey at the time of the German invasion and subsequent occupation of the island during the Second World War. They were among a large number of English-born islanders deported to Germany on Hitler's orders in reprisal for various British actions elsewhere. Sidney was eventually released and, after the war, married Violet Burge, also an internee at Biberach Camp and a friend of Florence's.
