    Hi,
    I am writing in response to your request for information re: Sgt Young A.E. RCAF (POW) R/84664 344/26815. Sgt Young was my mother's brother and she is pleased and proud to tell you that his firstnames were Alvin Edward. He passed away in 1994 but my mother, who is 91, has been recently reading as much as she can about Stalag 8B and her brother's time spent as a POW. This is, in fact, how I stumbled upon this site and your email address. I hope this information reaches you OK. I am not known for my internet skills!
