Hello folks, I've been researching my family tree for a while now and admittedly I've made a few mistakes along the way, but I've stripped my tree back and found the last living member of my family with the surname 'Cope'. We sat down and had a chat about his younger days as an RAF military Police man, but then he went onto his siblings. I couldn't believe my ears when he went on to explain all about one of his brothers and my great grand uncle. His name was 'George William Cope' and he was a private in the Northamptonshire Regiment during WW2. His service number was 5887506 and he was at Dunkirk during the mass evacuation. Sadly George was one of the servicemen who was left behind and subsequently became a prisoner of war. The camp that George was detained at was called Lambinowice in Poland and this is where he was issued his camp number 12940. From what I can gather George never spoke much about his time as a POW and there are no medals to be found. I guess the experience as a POW was one that he'd rather forget about. But as an ex serviceman myself, his story has me intrigued. I've looked into 'Ancestry.co.uk' and 'Find my past' and I've found him on both of those sites, but for the life of me I cannot find his service records or medal card on the 'National Archive'. Is it true that all WW2 documents are still classified?
