I am posting this in the hope I can shed some light on my Grandad's war experiences. What I do know is his Service Number: 6022791 - James William Garner - Buff's (East Kent Regiment) and that he was taken prisoner in Italy in 1943. I have a Postcard from the German authorities, dated December 22 1943 (from Transit Camp for POW FP. Nr. 31979) and I know he was moved to a Prisoner of War Camp in Germany. He never ever mentioned the war or anything about his experiences. I am planning to request his full Military Service from the Ministry of Defence, which I believe I can do? My aim is to find any Testimonies or Books written by anyone who was a prisoner with him in 1944 / 45. I would be extremely grateful for any help or advice on how to find more information.
