Good afternoon to you all, I'm a new member and only started researching my grandfather's history a few days ago. I am very fortunate to have known my grandfather and he was in my life until I was 18. I have some of his military documents plus a lot of photos from Stalag VIII B whilst he was a PoW. I'm not sure if anybody would like me to post those and if so, where would I post them? I am going to send off for his Service personnel records (I found the info on this site, so thankyou). Where could I get a copy of the War Diary please? When searching online, another serviceman has the same PoW number as my grandfather which was confusing. On the Army PoW list my grandfather's surname is spelled incorrectly (Etherington). Is there any other information I could obtain? Any advice would be gratefully received. From National Archives online I've found out the following information. Here's the relevant information from the record: Name: Robert James Etherton Date of Birth: 10/02/1912 Place of Birth: Bognor, Sussex Service: British Army Rank: Private Regiment/Unit/Squadron: The Royal Sussex Regiment (2nd Bn) Service Number: 6396830 Date of Capture: 27 May 1940 Theatre of Capture: Hazebrouck Camp Name/Number: Stalag VIIIB Lamsdorf PoW number: 13243 Thankyou.
