    Hi Barbara, I am very aware of your uncle after reading the thread here and having just finished Steve Foster's excellent book. An extraordinarily moving story.

    I had an uncle die last year and cleared out his house. In so doing I found the letters from his cousin who was the one in XXa and B. Unfortunately I was in the middle of moving house at the time and still have a lot of stuff in storage to unpack, including my relatives POW letters! As soon as I find them I will post.

    I am also waiting for the ICRC records requests to re-open in September to see if I can get his file from them. I have his Mi9 questionnaire which details that he was in several work camps. Consequently I have been focusing my reading on the work camps at the moment.

    In the meantime I have been reading everything I can find about those camps, and also managed to buy some letters and photos from ebay from other prisoners there.
