    Hi Kyle,

    Thanks again for posting these pictures.

    He would’ve gone to Stalag 17A (before quickly being allocated to a work camp) from Italy via Stalag 7A at Moosburg - where his number would’ve been allocated about mid September 1943.

    My late father followed the same route from PG53 in Italy - his number was 155373 - and he arrived at 17A 3rd November 1943 before being moved onto Stalag 17B at Krems and a work camp at Mistelbach the following month.
