RAF and Commonwealth Air Forces Prisoner's of War (Ross McNeill)
Database :: PoWs/Evaders

RAF and Commonwealth Air Forces Prisoners of War

This is a database of all commonwealth airforces POWS and Evaders in the Second World War. The primary PoW data is taken from the Ross McNeill's lists. This was first compiled by Ross McNeill from the AIR20/2336 Records file held at the Public Record Office, Kew, London. The PoW names are in alphabetical order and include RAF/RAAF/RCAF/RNZAF/SAAF and Occupied Countries aircrew. Camps and names are generally correct for March/April 1944 with some entries being correct upto February 1945. The old site is still available at POW Archive.

Subsequently the data was enriched from information in AIR81 DB, CWGC DB and WO392 Rosters. Member Pete Davies contributed to this effort.

A significant amount of updates were done by comparing with data provided by Rob Davis. The Evader Data was provided by Rob

Please Note that this list is limited to the European/Med theatre of Operations and does not cover the Far East. The Far East Prisoner of War lists can be procured from COFEPOW
