    Default Help With a Young Palestine Airman POW If You Please

    Hello All,
    One of our clients on the Euro/Africa POW db is 774529 AC2 P Geiringer.
    I cannot locate the Surname origin, but the Service Number indicates Palestinian* origin, mid-1940.
    Does anybody know where/why/how he ‘went in the bag’ - and his Forename?
    TIA
    Peter Davies
    * Palestine as in 1940 before the state of Israel was invented, etc, etc! No political views intended.

    P(aul) Geiringer and the fake name
    Garry Patrick which he introduced in captivity
    To hide his German Jewish origin.

    VMT for that info.
    I was intrigued by the name and location.
    You have solved the question(s). This young man now becomes a person - not just a statistic!!
    Tks again!
