    7012422 L/Cpl. A. G. Galbraith was a P.o.W. in WW2.

    He was at Camp 59 in Italy (at Servigliano), then Stalag 18A in Austria (then part of Nazi Germany). His P.o.W. Number was 9213.

    I think this is probably the same A. G. Galbraith as Ricky Galbraith's father. I've found two - one born May 18th 1914 in Antrim who is Richard Galbraith's father and another one born in April 1922 in Belfast who went to the US in 1924 and was drafted into the US armed forces in 1942.

    Regards

    Simon

    Thanks Simon, yes this is correct thank you for the information AG Galbraith DOB 1914 was Ricky's father. I think the other one is also related.
