Hello, I always thought an escaper or evader, in the ranks, would get at least an MID for an escape/evade? Maybe escapers did but evaders didn't? However i may be naively basing this on having medals to an escaper awarded an MID and having seen so many MM's to escapers for sale. I am researching a man who i believe is an escaper, more research to be carried out, who does not appear to have any kind of award. 808707 F Burke who i believed escaped from Camp 53 Italy. This is based on him having a record in the escaper/evasion reports papers at the National Archives, WO 208/3317. This states 'Escaped from Campo 53, Macerata; rejoined British Forces in Italy.' in the title. I havent seen the record yet. Any assistance with this would be appreciated. I have contact a private researcher to photo the record for me.
