He must've been, but is there any way of finding out when he was repatriated?

Regards

The information should be in his Service Record but that unfortunately involves a long wait at present.

My grandfather spent some time in Stalag XXA before being moved to XXB. He was there for most of the war and took the long walk home. If I can make it work, I have attached a photo ... I would love to hear of anyone that can help me piece together any of his experiences. He had shrapnel removed from a leg wound whilst there. Prisoner No: 9681

I'm looking to find out any information on my Great uncle who was at Stalag XXB. His name was Leslie Abbey and was captured at Dunkirk. I've tried to find prisoner list for the camp but don't find his name listed. If anyone has any info that would be fantastic.

There is a Pte L H Abbey 3709000 K.O.R.R. in the 1945 Lists as Stalag XXB POW No. 13691.

Perhaps he made a Report when Liberated.
Will take a look in my Database and  get back to you.

Yes he did make a Report when Liberated.
Didn't have a great deal to say though other than the Basics.

Came from Hull with Profession given as Deep Sea Trawlerman. 
Typical Logic of the time putting him in the Army with all his Seafaring experience.

He seems to have worked in Agriculture for the whole period of Captivity.

Thank you so much for the information. I'm a Canadian living in western Canada and wanted to find out about my Great uncle who I've head so much about.

My grandfather spent over a year in Stalag XXA before being transferred to Stalag XXB. I would love to know if there is a liberation report relating to him.

If anyone can assist with this please contact me, I would be very grateful.

Also last year I also visited Malbork and saw the memorial there, if you are interested in the photos please send me an email: (*)
