The Great Escape

About 70 of them escape, but 50 get caught and shot, including Roger, Mac and Ashley. 11 of them get brought back, including the Scrounger and Steve Macqueen's character, who gets put in the cooler again. The forger goes blind, escapes with the scrounger and then dies. The only Aussie and the two tunnel diggers get away, but these are the only ones we know of who do.
