    Is there a POW list for the British captured at Crete, looking for Black Watch soldiers

    Nemesis, best I can do is a list of all men in my POW database that have Black Watch listed as their Regiment/Unit. There are 1501 men listed I believe. If you sort out which ones were captured at Crete I would love to add the info to my database.

    German POW camps only I'm afraid (Italian POW lists haven't been transcribed yet).

    I came across this book today in the reference section of a local library. I never knew this book existed, but it might be of use to you.
    ISBN shown in image below.

    My great uncle was a Crete POW. Albert Henry Le Vier (Vx24688) he was in Oflag 3c & then moved to Stalag 383.

    I have just purchased a book on ebay there are plenty available,
    The Fall of Crete, by Alan Clark. Apparently there is a group photo in there, amongst others. When my copy arrives I can have a look for you and see if there is anything in there that may be of interest to you, unless you wish to buy your own copy as well :)
