    Thanks for attaching his German POW records Alastair. I’ve never seen those forms previously. I obtained my father’s POW Index Card when I submitted FOI to NA a few years ago.

    Did you get them from the newly digitised German records at Kew?

    The POW is the original and came with the paybook, I'm under the impression that in some camps on liberation some men took their cards as souvenirs - I think I have another but cant seem to find it - I've seen a few for sale over the years but not many.

    Hi Alistair,

    Frederick's Liberation questionnaire was available on the Cofepow website:

    Hi Alistair,

    The researchers at Cofepow only put the first page up on line I'm afraid. The form itself can be up to five pages long, other questions were set around, sabotage, lectures attended, treatment by Japanese etc.
    I have seen very few of these questionnaires where these other pages are filled out, so the chances are Frederick's form would have no further information.

    3857260 Sergeant Gordon Eric MELLALIEU, who was captured with 18th Recce at the fall of Singapore - I wonder if he knew Trooper Norcross also of 18th Recce who features earlier in the thread

    Alistair,

    RE: DP. Evans. There is a thread on the forum in relation to Campo 65, including a Red Cross Report and some photographs of the camp, or what is left of it today. Thought you might want to take a look.

    I hadn't even noticed he had 2 different middle names on his 2 books, the part 2 (Alfred) is the original one he had pre capture and the part 1 (Albert) was a replacement when he was liberated so probably done more hurriedly - looking at the other odds and ends of paperwork 2 mention Alfred
