Thanks Robert,
The area would fit and I suppose 25th April could have been the last time he was seen alive by his comrades.

Thanks Timberman and Mack. I suppose it is inevitable that some will remain a mystery, but with everyones help I think only 2 or 3 have remained elusive. Considering there are something like 2600 entries in the database I reckon that is fantastic.

Good work Charlie,
I've been cross-checking some 'Missing' CWS men and you had a 100% hit rate. It's a very useful resource.

Cheers

New in the last update.

In the last update I have added a comment for some entries in the Battalion column, it applies to those who were on detachment at the time of capture. It is indicated by a yellow triangle in the top righthand corner of the cell, a comments box should open when the cursor hovers over the cell. The triangle would seem not to show on an i-Pad (and perhaps similar tablets) unless the document is downloaded.
