    Award Mentioned in Despatches L/Cpl. H. Rose, (5827498) Suffolk Regiment No. 7 Commando Escaped POW CAMP 102 (Aquila) Italy



    ESCAPES FROM CAMP 102 (AQUILA) ITALY
    RECOMMENDATIONS FOR AWARDS
    (1) After the Armistice with ITALY had been signed, the Italian Commandant opened the gates of the camp and marched the P/W out into the hills, as it was reported that Germans were approaching. A certain number of escapers were rounded up by German paratroops and taken back to camp, but the majority got safely away.

    (2) I recommend the following other ranks for the awards shown, brief particulars being given in the enclosures stated opposite their names.
    WO 373/95/140

    MIA 19th-20th April 1921 Raid on Bardia 3rd Bn Special Service
