    TNA Catalogue Reference: WO 361/68

    The following lists are transcriptions of notes in Missing Personnel file for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Battalions Grenadier Guards.

    The contents of these files are basically working documents - lists which the clerks used to note any updates in the status of the missing - POW, DOW, KIA. All too often however no further information was forthcoming.

    In order to make more sense of the data, I have sorted the names into alphabetical order, but Post No. 24 shows the pages and the information in the order in which they are presented within the file.
