    Hello everyone.

    I am working on our family tree and have recently discovered that my Great Uncle was a POW. I have been provided with some photos of his service handbook, diary, and medals during his time as a POW.

    The diary has several names and addresses on and I would love to get in touch with any of their relatives.

    Also if anyone can help with any further information I would be extremely grateful.

    It will be best to transcribe all the entries so they can be picked up by search engines.
    Maybe have a photo of each page and then add the transcription underneath.
