Database Supplementary Lists
« on: March 14, 2008, 12:23:04 PM »
G'day Team,

In constructing my Database I would like to build some supplementary lists. If anyone could furnish me with the following data, it would be a great help:

Official Reasons for Discharge ie. those that appear on Service Records (unfit etc.)
POW Camps the Manchesters were interred in.

There are others, but these will do for a start!

Cheers,

Dave

POW camps
many of the 16th,ended up in dulmen,westphalia in 1916
others mentioned,were giessen and cassell.
it depended on the soldiers condition when captured,many of the wounded were put aboard hospital trains for places all over germany.

Thanks Mack,

Will get all of those down.

Next required is the offence types and their codes out of the Kings Regs. Anyone willing?

Cheers,

Dave
