    My great grandfather was captured on the dieppe raid. He was part of the Essex Scottish from windsor ontario. I noticed he had a commando badge. Im trying to figure out where he was kept as a pow. Any information would be appreciated


    thank you

    Hi-He may have completed a POW Questionnaire after the war.

    I believe that POW Questionnaires are at the National Archives in WO 344

    As your thread title was rather vague I've edited slightly to attract more attention to other members with a similar interest.
    Good Luck.

    Hi JRH93, and welcome. Can you post any further details? His name, Regt/Btn, photos, any docs you have?
    The more info the better and then folks on here can provide help to you based on your specific situation.
    We may be able to find a POW record that will show his last camp, and it may have his Army number but to do so we need more details. If we find him you can then order a liberation report (takes ~4 weeks) and maybe get more details. You could also then order his service records (takes ~6-12 months) and send a request to the International Red Cross (takes ~12-18 months) to see what details they may have.
