Thanks Charlie,
I should have spotted it still.  The link to the ICRC card may add a little.  Soldiers Effects also confirms he died in a St Quentin Hospital.
Cheers

I found the undermentioned „new PoWs“ as being repatriated on 16.12.1918 in a WO casualty list, the medal rolls confirm that they are Manchester Regt. As they are not recorded in the ICRC files is there anything more known about them please?

277665 John George Senior Barton, 2/7th Bn, Withington.
350736 William Parkes Chalmers, 1/9th Bn, Ashton u. L.
55794 James Gillbank, 2/6th Bn, Droylesden.
54717 James William Hague, 17th Bn, Glossop.
53885 Joseph Hammond, 2/7th Bn, Kingsland
48626 Ronald Handley, 12th Bn, Manchester.
401012 Charles Knowles, 12th Bn, Liverpool.
50846 James Miller, 2nd Bn, Dunston on Tyne.
350428 William Murphy, 1/9th Bn, Dukinfield.
252686 Frank Willis, 2/6th Bn, Manchester.

53457 L/Cpl Victor John Ollive, 2nd Bn, Thetford, is only recorded as missing as of 26.08.1918 in the ICRC files.

302159 A/Cpl Alfred Hough, 2/7th Bn, Warrington, is recorded as 2/4th E.Lancs in the ICRC files.

Dear Charlie,
It was a thrill to find the names of the German camps where my grandad was held - unknown to our family before.
Thank you so much to all those who have worked on this marvellous resource!

However, his service number seems to have been transcribed incorrectly.
He was Duxbury, James 34216 18th Manchesters. I have his papers and the record of capture document. I attach the latter.
Many thanks

Hi Gill,

In the "Hello" section there is a detailed explanation of how to post a picture, by harribobs.  Hope this helps !

Thanks Neil, very helpful. I don‘t think I have ever seen a MiC for just the pair marked as PoW. That seemed to be reserved for the 1914 Star qualifiers who had been taken prisoner, if you remember there was talk about denying them the award.
