    This is a good way of finding mystery names - put surname in WO416 index download results < 10000 then sort by name find the L records and then see who matches

    Default Resmoroh aka Peter Davies Request O/S PoW Queries

    Peter

    With the use of the W0416 files of

    War Office: German Record cards of British and Commonwealth Prisoners of War and some Civilian Internees, Second World War


    https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C14541141

    Which have only been indexed to 100K from around 200K so far we can maybe find more mystery PoW full names etc - I have found 5 or 6 in last day

    is it possible you can now pots a list of all your O/S queries you have posted so far on RAFCommands as I have been through last 4 or so post and think they all cleared up so far

    Thanks

    Paul
