Royal Army Service Corp. Klamath and Wolfsburg.
« on: Tuesday 17 October 17 20:27 BST (UK) »
My Dad, William Campbell McIntyre served from 1939 - 1952, joining up again after demobilisation.
He was also at Dunkirk before being captured at Kalamata.
He was a P.O.W. in Wolfsburg in Austria.Is there anyone who has a relative who had a similar experience and is prepared to share information.

Hi

There is a tale of a soldier who was also captured at Kalamata, Greece.

Are you sure that it was Wolfsburg in Austria and not Wolfsburg in Germany?

You can find much information about POW Camps in and near Wolfsburg, Germany.
