Some Knowledge

For this group of Normandy PoWs, held briefly in the shed, I’ve only been able to ascertain some basic information – Returning PoW Questionnaires, details of Red Cross Parcels sent & in once case, details of where he’s buried in Prague

For these men, I have been able (with assistance from the National Archives http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/) to find their “Returning PoW Questionnaires”.

In addition, with help from the staff at The Green Howard’s Museum in Richmond (http://www.greenhowards.org.uk/) I have been able to add a little more detail to their stories.

Finally, and sadly, through the Commonwealth War Graves Commission site (http://www.cwgc.org/) I have been able to find out a little more information on Pte Clifford Wellings who did not survive the war.
