I am looking for any information on the soldier below whose details I have found on the German Record Cards of British and Commonwealth Prisoners of War ref. National Archives file WO 416/11/194. The date and place of capture are obviously identical to that of Operation Chariot at St. Nazaire 28 March 1942. I have already advised Jim Dorrian, author and St. Nazaire Society Historian, who is making enquiries himself.
