    Thanks Peter; I appreciate you looking for him.

    I have to apologise as I was led astray by another site that said he was M. J. Smith, not N. J., as it appears was in fact the case.

    N. J. now matches with Ross' POW lists, which provided me a service number, and this has led in turn to forenames of Norman John, with the nickname 'Mushroom.

    Sorry you spent time looking for nothing.

    Guys,
    Mushroom Smith was in the same camps as my Father at the same time and is mentioned in my Web site. He was a mate of James McCairns. I have his liberation questionnaire somewhere. Might have some of the others too.
