Received this recently and thought would share. Is it rare that a soldier would have this taken home. He was a POW (can't find him ICRC yet) Interesting item. Also attached another doc as POW

Mike,

Thanks very much for posting these docs.

I was vaguely aware of the will-making form, but the rest is totally new to me.

The "Kriegsgefangenensendung" document is, to me, exceptional.

What tears of relief his mother must have cried at the good news that he was safe & well!!!

Regards,

JMB

Thanks JMB glad it was useful to you. I wonder how many of these are still around.

If FMP will do as an alternative..

FMP also have some service papers under his 1223 number and 265125 number. I didn't go through them, so I don't know how much of an overlap there is.

Thanks Chris. The very one. Not sure what the ICRC site has him listed under. It's not 'Steward'.

Hi Mike,

I guess that you could search the ICRC site using the PA numbers from the index card above. Whilst the service records might show his actual repatriation date, in the absence of that, he appears on this list - NLS link

Thanks again Chris. It's not vital to my research but of general interest. Thanks for finding it. I'm sure if I persevered I would find it in their quirky system

 

Cheers Mike
