    Default Bill Buckell

    I have an extract from a POW diary which refers to a "Bill Buckell" at Stalag Luft III.

    Does anyone have any information on who this might be, his squadron or which loss he was involved with?

    The diarist arrived at the camp in September 1943, so "Bill" would have been there at that time.

    Your usual help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Pete

    Hi Pete,
    There are some similar names here, maybe worth digging around:

    Hello

    A.E. Buckell was Albert Edward, a "local" loss for me. As shown in the table, he was in camp 344 at Lamsdorf, from October 1942 to May 1945, and in working camps during this period. So, not your man.
