I am doing some research on the 12/13 Northumberland Fusiliers during the German Spring Offensive of 1918 and wondered if anyone had a copy of the book “LIST of BRITISH OFFICERS TAKEN PRISONER in the VARIOUS THEATRES of WAR Aug 1914 to Nov 1918”

What I would like to know is the names of any officers taken prisoner from this battalion on the 21st of March 1918?

Thanks

Paul

Excuse me butting into this post, can anyone please tell me if any other information is listed in this publication “LIST of BRITISH OFFICERS TAKEN PRISONER in the VARIOUS THEATRES of WAR Aug 1914 to Nov 1918” other than names, rank and date taken?

I am doing some research on a budget and can't seem to access it through our local library.

Hi Glen,

Welcome to the Forum.

The information given is as follows:

Regiment and Battalion.

Rank; Surname and initials; Date Missing; Where and date of internment; Date of release. Also place and date of death(if applicable)

Sometimes a number of these fields are left blank, particularly that of the place of internment.

Hope this helps,

Robert
