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.
Thanks for info, not seen it before
That's what the forum is all about mate - sharing info.
Good luck with your research.
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
Thanks for the info on the book, will have a look for it
