Hi Guy's,

Wondering if anyone can help in finding out which prisoner of war camp my great grandfather might have been in, ive completely hit a blank.

His name was Harry (Henry) Charles Billington, he was a private in the 1st Battalion KLR, number 4069 (later 201632)

I do have a photocopy of the war diary of the battalion for the month he was posted as missing which was 16th April 1918 at Boisleux-Au-Mount which i think was near the front line at Ficheux.

I have tried the route of the Red cross, which took over 12 months from my first initial inquiry but unfortunately by the time i had the chance to pay the fee to take it further id been mad redundant and just couldn't fund it. This last piece of the jigsaw to my great grandfathers contribution has frustrated me now for nearly 2 years.

No family members have any idea, where he was, they didn't really no to much about his part in the great war as he never spoke about it, theres no POW info at the National Archive either, so brick wall it is.

If there is anyone out there that could offer any help/advise id be over the moon. I feel i owe my great granddad this to be able to pass on to fmily members and to my children.

Thanks for reading and hope some one can come up trumps.
