    Hi, this is my website. It is still in a beta stage, with some more to do content wise as well as minor design additions and changes. I also need to finish up some source citations.

    Any feedback, input, or constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated.

    I would also appreciate any contributions anyone has, I am searching for escape/evader reports to link to my list and a POW list with last camp information and of course stories.

    Thank you Marius, appreciate your comments.

    It is beginning to settle down now after a tremendously busy first couple of weeks. I could never in my wildest dreams predict such a fabulous reaction to its publishing.

    Hi Wayne,

    Brilliant effort, I will look through my records, I may have the odd POW liberation report for German camps? Amazing amount of detail you have collected, welcome to the semi-obsessional club, where the world never sleeps.:lol:

    Jacksun where'd you source your E&E lists from?

    Hi Diane, actually there are many places for this one, and I'm still not certain it is 100% accurate. I think I may be high by about 1500 names, maybe more, hopefully the remaining WO208 name indexes will resolve some of it.
    I also have some Canadian, Australian, and New Zealand names in there and debating removing them.

    I managed to find and buy 14 E&E name indexes from the National Archives (3rd party) and a list with about 5000 names on it (3rd party) which was where I started. I have ordered the remaining E&E reports from KEW (WO208) but they aren't here yet. They'll help me do a final verification.

    I then gathered everything I could find and it went into spreadsheets. This includes the great info on conscript-heroes.com (I just copied the names/ranks/units, not all the other great info he has) and many other sites. Basically if I found a story about an escape, the guys name went into my spreadsheet.

    I then paid someone from scriptlance to deal with the transcribing (WO208's), sorting, removing doubles, matching soldier numbers etc.

    So anyway, there's an ungodly long answer to a short question but putting this together, as far as it is now, wasn't easy.

    Sorry guys, my caching app crashed the rendering of my front page in Firefox and IE, but it was fine in Chrome.
    All fixed now but the front page was looking like my 1year old granddaughter coded it.

    Hi Anne-just looked at the website and had a nosey in the book! Seems a good start for me because I am planning a trip to Italy next year. This book can be bought on Amazon in the UK for around 4 quid so I will give it a go!

    Just thought I would put a note up here as I have added some stuff to my site which may or may not be of interest to someone.

    - Camps and Camps II are updated with a compilation of what I have gathered in my travels. This includes camps from Java, Philippines, France, China and more
    - There are now 2 lists of Italian camps, one I have gathered, and one from KEW that was included in the lists of POW's
    - Arthur E. Adams diary is posted, with permission
    - Rommel and Russian propaganda pictures are up in the gallery
    - All 1940's Dunkirk related War Diaries are now posted in the Library under Diaries
    - The E & E index pages are now available in the Library under Reference
    - The Army Lists from Archive.org are posted in the library under Reference - they show in a searchable viewer
    - A list of Allied Prisoners held in Japanese POW camps (2743 pages) is posted under POW's A-C/Japanese POW's
    - A list of Allied Prisoners held in Italian POW camps (285 pages) is posted under POW's A-C/Italian POW's (includes Brit/Aus/Cdn/NZ/SA/Indian armies, Naval, Merchant seamen, Air Forces, Palestinians, Cypriots, Mauritians, and East Africans).

    Hope this helps someone.

    I started this website as a memorial to my great uncle who was KIA on Peleliu 15 Sept 1944. I consider it both an honor and an obligation to keep his and all who served during this tragic war alive.
