    Default Fate of Escaped POW's ?

    Fate of Escaped POW's ?

    Is it known just how many POW's who escaped that never were seen again ?
    Are their names known ? If so how can one find the details of their escape and last know sighting ?

    Thinking along the lines that some maybe at rest as Unknowns in CWGC cemeteries ?

    Any thoughts/answers welcome

    Thanks
    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    I don't believe either of these rest as unknowns:

    https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/c...-john-william/

    https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/c...eginald-harry/

    Grimson's story is best told in John Dominy's "The Sergeant Escapers" while Barratt's rated part of a chapter in "The Iron Cage" by Nigel Cawthorne.
