    Joe, the best thing to do here is apply to the MOD for your granddads Service records. It costs about £30 and can take up to 6 months to receive, But they should have an entry that says “Home” dated ......1945. From this date we can determine which ship disembarked ex pows in Britain and make a match.

    I’ll try and dig out the forms you need Joe and email them to you. I think there is two of them and you’ll need to send them a cheque. They won’t accept anything else. One more thing is to add a note with your application asking for photocopies of the original documents and not transcriptions.

    Make em work for the money you pay!
