I am hoping to get help with some information regarding Lt.Col. George Hew Fanshawe, who was O.C. The Queen’s Bays, from 2 November 1939 until 7 October 1940. He was later appointed 2i/c of the 3rd Armoured Brigade. At some point in 1942 he was captured by the Italians which I assume was during the retreat in April of that year. The Prisoner of War records on FindMyPast show that he was ‘wounded and a prisoner of war’, and that he was held at P.o.W. Camp 29 at Vernon (Piacenza). Later reports show he was ‘previously reported wounded and prisoner of war in Italian hands now in neutral country (Switzerland)’. Hoping that wasn’t too much of a wander through the bushes, my actual question is: can anyone tell me when and where he was captured?
