Hi Cris,

Yes, that is the extent of what we know. Not much, I'm afraid.

I had originally hoped that one of Rose's descendants (or a friend, neighbour, etc.) might recognise the story and get in touch. A lot of German POWs were apparently treated very well, but I think that the fact that Emil's little brother was invited over to be taken care of might be a little more unusual.

Birgit hasn't spoken to her cousins for getting on for 50 years...she is preparing herself for the 'phone call(s). She is not as impulsive as me!  ;D

Hi Tug,

Thanks for that. If Scotsannie's info is correct, that Rose emigrated to Oz in 1919 and died there in 1974.

We are going to have to wait until Birgit has spoken to her cousin(s), I'm afraid.

Thanks again for your help!

Interim update:

I have tried contacting the church where Birgit was christened. They answer the 'phone for a period of 2 minutes every 3 months (OK, slight exaggeration  ;D) - I'll try again on Monday, the next possibility - and they have not replied to our mails (yet).

General concensus of opinion here is that the records would probably not show Rose's address anyway, but I'm not going to give up on this one until we have a definite answer from the church.

The National Archives say that the records for German POWs in England were all handed over to the International Red Cross. I'm now putting out feelers in that direction, too...

Could someone look up 'Rose F I Peek', born 1897, living in Melford Suffolk on 1939, as her husband, Harry Ernest Peck is an agricultural worker when she dies.

Yes, I know who the couple are, I just wanted to know if they are agricultural labourers or farmers in 1939.
