    I'm currently trying to find any information on the above soldier, POW number 70691 at Stalag XII-D. I believe he was 5th Battalion East Lancs Regt but I can't confirm this. I think his service number gives him a joining date of approx late 1942 and he should have been 17/18 years old at this point.

    Any signposting to information on Pte Thomas Viner, his capture or confirmation of his unit and their activities in 1944 would be appreciated.

    That's awesome thank you. I suspected he was 5th Battalion but couldn't remember why I'd thought that or where I may have seen it.

    Thank you very much Ozzy
