    36158 Alfred Hope MASON of the 2nd NZEF he as captured in 1941 when the Germans overran a dressing station where he was serving, he was repatriated in May 1943, I think as a medic accompanying the wounded. Below is a cutting about the repatriation and then another service book, this time his Fiancé (mentioned in the cutting) who later became his wife

    4455249 Thomas Swineburne BLYTHE 8th DLI, the casualty returns seem to have him missing 21/5/40 but his discharge certificate below reads as if he became a POW 11-12/7/40, not sure if he evader for a bit (the dates on certificates like these tend to tie in with when they became POW's) of if the later date is when he crossed from France to Germany and he had already been a POW for a bit. Hopefully he has a liberation questionnaire and it will help. The photo has his details on the back so I'm assuming its him marked with the x

    Here is Nolan on WO392/21. Held at Campo 148, which I believe was located near Verona. Forum member, vitellino may know more.
