    Just going through some of my paperwork tidying up POW details and for this gent I'm struggling to find any circumstances behind his capture - I'm sure I did a lot of digging about a year ago and half think I found something but if I did I didn't record it

    Cheers

    Great stuff - he gets a mention here HMS Glowworm but I'd never have found it without the ship name to narrow it down - cheers
