hi, this is my first post so go easy on me, i am researching my Grandads timeline through WW2. Ive asked my Dad and my uncles and aunties and they all say he never mentioned where he went or what he did. these are the deatils i have so far, any more information would be very much appreciated. NAME - Joe Gildroy RANK - PRIVATE ARMY NO. – 4391280 REGT – GREEN HOWARDS POW NO. 29215 CAMP – STALAG viiiB CAMP NO. 344 CAMP LOCTAION – LAMBINOWICE, POLAND (Lamsdorf) The only details we have of his service in WW2 are just rumours but they might help, we beleive he was captured in northern Africa, he was put to work down a coal mine at Sosnowitz West coal mine while been pow, then rescued at Dunkirk. i have attatched a picture of the green howards at the coal mine with some names on there, my grandad i sthe one with the big red arrown above his head. again any information no matter how small will be greatfully received.
