Hi Gary,

Thanks for the listing. The rest would be useful as I have a couple I am looking out for. Can you say what publication it is from?

Hi Gary

I have been compiling any BW POW's for quite some time so any you can add would be of help.

Thanks very much for posting.

Kind regards

Hi Tom

Thanks for posting that.

The POW info is very fragmented. I started taking notice when I found someone I was interested was a POW, he escaped and made it back over no-mans land!

I have been hunting my book collection for that one on Red Cross enquires but fear I have hid it away as I was so disappointed in it. The thing was like a collection

of photocopies of an old school banda machine.

Kind regards

Fred

I think you are right re Central Library. Bottom shelf LH corner?

Hi Fred. My GF ( 8th BW) was picked up by the Germans at the Hohenzollern, Loos. Taken back to hospital. he died 10 days later. I never really think of him as a POW more died of wounds, but of course, technically he was. I can let you have his number etc. if you are interested.

He was discharged on 11/3/1916.

S-3531 Pte John Rodger, age 38, 8th Black Watch. Enlisted August 1914. Died 8th October 1915. His home address was Wilson Street, Lochee. He is buried in Phalempin Communal Cemetery. Phalempin is south of Lille and was a Corps HQ. The CWGC section holds about 50/60 graves, I guess. If there is anything else I ought to tell you let me know. I am not in to family history so I don't know all that much about him.
