138 Northumberland Fusiliers was L/Cpl/ Arthur G. ROBINSON not Robertson. The I.R.C. p.o.w. records show that he was captured at Ypres on 7 November 1914. He was repatriated from Germany in November 1918, landing in England on 18 November 1918 on S.S."Arbroath".

This is a link to the Red Cross website: Red Cross

 

Coincidentally, my grandfather was repatriated on the Arbroath on 18 November; he had been interned in Holland since the January of that year, however, having been a POW since Le Cateau in  August 1914. He was also a one-stripe NCO (a 2nd Corporal, RE) - I wonder if L/Cpl Robinson had had a similar experience, if he'd been in captivity since 1914? The Red Cross records should show, I guess.

 

Cheers, Pat

Have an address as 4 North Avenue, Leterworth, Hampshire, but this place doesn't seem to exist.
