    Does anybody provide a service for obtaining PoW questionnaires from Kew? I'm trying to put together my grandfathers movements during the war for my mother but its difficult living in Dubai.

    Hi Drew,
    I can't be sure what year he was captured but he was originally in Campo Concentramento Prigionieri di Guerra P.G.82 in Italy before they pulled out and he was hidden in a village for some time before being recaptured and taken to XI-A Altengrabow, Saxony-Anhalt. I'd presume it was 43 or 44 when ended up in Germany.

    Apologies Drew; continued..

    I actually came to this site looking for you as I was given your name by a historian for the Durham Light Infantry named Jim in 2013 but I never got around to following this up.

    Hi Scott

    No problem if you have already approached Lee, he'll look after you and hopefully buy me a Latte at Kew when we meet next at the archives. I'm guessing your relative was DLI then?

    Cheers
    Andy
