POW in Russia

Recommended Posts

hmsk212

I have a document that belonged to a Pte from the 13th Yorkshire Regt who was a POW in Russia in 1919. Does anyone know where I can get it translated?

Hi, Steve,

You might start at your local library or, perhaps, the nearest school or university. Often there will be someone with the necessary skills employeed at one of these institutions. I often use "babelfish"

but I fear your document may be in cyrillic.

Best of luck,

Ann K.

This document of yours, what form is it in? Is it a actual original letter, account in typed or digital form?

He was discharged from the 13th Yorks in July 1920. His protection Certificate dated April 1920 shows him as a repatriated prisoner of war. He served in WW2 as a "Post Invasion Warden" for the Merton & Morden area.
