    good afternoon guys, I do have to say with disappointment at the moment I don't own any records from ICRC as I keep missing the window but I do plan on ordering them next time, I do believe he was the first wave of POWs to enter the camp but wasn't sure thanks for confirming that for me,

    been an amateur of this research I didn't know of any records for the working party's so this is new to me and something i am interested in leaning more of, what sort info could I learn from searching these out ? and could you point me in the right direction on where to get these records

    Hi,

    The only details I’ve seen about Work Camps on the forum is when members have posted ICRC Stalag visit reports and were able to visit a handful of “attached” work camps.

    The reports I’ve seen don’t list names of work camp POW’s and are more concerned with camp conditions. The work camp leader and/or man of confidence isn’t usually named.

    Sorry I can’t post a list to the reports I recall having sight of. A search of National Archives catalogue may turn up ICRC inspection reports

    The only personal recollection I can add is that my late father spoke of being taken from his Stalag 17 B work camp at Mistelbach to see ICRC inspection team at Wiener Neustadt in summer 1944. I’ve never searched for the report.

    FYI

    Anyone who managed to submit an ICRC application in the very short window of opportunity 17th September 2018 ought to be receiving the ICRC reply shortly. I received mine today.
