How would one go about requesting service records of Indian soldiers from WWII. I have the names of two Indian Nursing Sepoys that were in the Rennes POW Hospital and would like to follow up on them. In particular if they filed E&E reports. I believe they were captured in North Africa.
- CPL Sohan Singh
- N/Sepoy Bashir-Ud-Din Ahmed
Apparently prior to D-Day the hospital had a population of 40 or so Indian POWs suffering from tuberculosis cared for by 5 Indian Medical Orderlies and paroled French doctors. I am trying to find out more about the Indian Medical staff and what they did when the D-Day casualities started showing up. I found a report by the American Senior Officer with a photo of him and Singh, and a MID report on Ahmed's escape but little else thus far.
So is there a specific location for Indian records I should be searching?
