Hello, I am new to the site (and military history!) but I am researching my family tree. My grampa told me little bits here and there about the war (like bits about being in Egypt and being 'naughty' so he was made to be a military police for a bit and going though ancient tunnels in Jerusalem) but I didn't know much about where he actually was and what he actually did. My nanna (his wife) is 92 and I wanted to be able to tell her a bit more and was hoping I could maybe ask people on here who are likely to have infinitely more experience than I, for a bit of help please? She is interested to know more and ordered his service history but some of the writing is hard to work out and there are lots of numbers and letters that I don't understand. We knew he was a pow and was forced to work in a factory (Herman Goering’s Benzene Fabrike). He was only 6 st when he came back. The best thing he ever saw was the white cliffs of Dover from a Lancaster bomber! He was in Stalag 8c amongst others, 8c is in his memoirs but not his service record (although the Stalag in his service records were a base to be shipped to other places to 'work' from). He escaped from one of them to get to Prague but he got caught near the Charles Bridge. There seems to be alot more info as to where he was and when in his records. I just wondered if someone might be kind enough to give us a bit of an over view as to what this is all about please? Best wishes Emma Ps I am going to have to upload a few pages at a time as all 12 pages together are too large. Please bear with me! Next attachment Next! Last one!
