    I thought I'd post up my POW paybooks (sorry for another paybook thread) - feel free to add any info you can to flesh out these men's stories - not surprisingly a few overlap with earlier posts. As there are about 90 of them it may take some time to add them all and to do it.

    7518861 Leonard BRATHWAITE, RAMC taken POW 20/6/42 - given the date I assume at the fall of Tobruk - he was repatriated in 1943
