Hi I'm new to this amazing site and wonder if anyone could point me in the right direction. I'm looking for any info I can find about my Grandad. He was with the Royal Artillery in North Africa, was captured and taken to Italy, then Poland. When still alive, he described his POW camp, in the vicinity of Auschwitz, being bombed by the Allies. He was wounded when a bomb flew into the shelter he was running into. His account sounds similar to the accounts I've read on here of the bombing of the IG Farben factory in which 38 POWs were killed. I don't know how I would go about verifying this, though. As he later escaped, I'm a bit surprised I can't find anything about him online. I have his medals (War Medal, Defence Medal, Africa Star, Dunkerque 1940 medal) and his POW Escape Club badge. I also have a hospital discharge certificate (in Polish) from when he was wounded in the bombing. Where might I find any more info about his time as a POW or his escape? If I apply for his service records, would they include any of that information? Thanks in advance.
