Captain David Wesley (Wes) Clare
My late father, Dr. (Capt.) Wes Clare was a “guest” at Stalag VIIIB after the Dieppe raid, Aug. 1942. He was a Canadian Doctor who won the Military Cross for his actions trying to save lives at Dieppe.
I understand part of the camp is now a museum. If you have any info in regard to my father’s incarceration at VIII-B/ 344 Lamsdorf, please forward it on to me.
I have a PDF version of his war diary which would cover his time there up to the “Death March” and notes while on that March, until his liberation by members of the British 8th Army, on Easter Mon, 1945, at Fallingbostel Camp, Germany.
Clare kept a diary of his long march until his liberation by members of the British 8th Army, on Easter Mon, 1945, at Fallingbostel Camp, Germany.
A map of the route of his long march is available as part of the Lamsdorf Long March project.
