Does anyone know if a record was kept of POW's...or where I might find any information? I have several news cuttings mentioning soldiers who were captured. Some say what camp they were in, others are just reporting that the person has been caught.

Hi Mel, I cant think of any web sites off hand, but is there anyway of finding out from the British Red Cross Society, they would possibly know or at least know someone that does. :idea:
