Information sent by Diane Kerwin, 4 December 2009:

My late Father was captured in 1940, not sure where, and sent to Stalag VIIIB. He was in the band of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, and was repatriated in late 1943 as a non combatant. He had been a stretcher bearer when captured. His name was George Bradbury. His brother in law, my late uncle was in the same camp, his name was Harry Neary, in (I believe) the Royal Sussex Regt. My Dads friends were also in the same camp, Bill Burton and Norman Hanmer. Norman had been wounded in the head and received very good care, with an operation to put a plate in his skull. Sadly, all of these men have now passed away – if anyone has any information regarding any of them I would be pleased to have it. In January of 1942 my Dad wrote a song called Greetings, and dedicated it to my Mother and I, I still have it. I also have some photos of stage plays etc., in the camp.

Bradbury is also mention in the Clarion, number 6 page 12.
