Help with Munster POW Leonard Sutcliffe

Hi, I am trying to learn more about my Granduncle Leonard Sutcliffe's WW1 service. He originally joined the 2nd British Rifle Brigade and later moved to the Kings Royal Rifle Corps. I know that he was a POW in Munster in August 1918. Is there any way I can find out if he was in 1, 2 or 3 camp? it's unlikely he was in 4 because I believe that was mainly for Russians and non European troops. Also is there any way to find out where he was captured? 

He was born 23 August 1899 in Brierfield near Nelson in Lancashire. He survived the war and received the British War Medal and the Victory Medal.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Jan

Thanks for the tips.

Unfortunately, both Leonard's cards for the Rifle Brigade and Kings Royal Rifles are blank and the Leonard Sutcliffe of the 10th Rifles isn't him.

Hi Jan,

His index card has been mis- filed under Royal Scots, he was captured at Ville aux Bois les Pontavert on 27.05.1918 while serving with 2 RB. He was held at Münster 2, Darmstadt and Senne.
