Do you have anything more on 352901 Arthur Maurice Wilson, 3498 in our database?  He does not show up in the ICRC records and all we have is - C Coy 16th Bn, taken 21.03.1918 and his home address.

Mack,
Sorry, I overlooked Arthur Maurice Wilsons index card, it just gives a negative response. It looks like he died of wounds on the 21.03.1918 and was not a PoW. His body was found at Grid Square (1:40000 map) 62D U30 B7.6 which is south of Villers Bretonneux. The CWGC have him as 9th Bn.

Mack,
No 3513 in our database - 2408 R Wolstenholme, I think is 375663 Robert Wolstenholme. He is listed by the ICRC as 2/10th Bn attached 1/Kings Liverpool. 375663 is a 10th Bn number. Is that his long number and 2408 his short one ?

Thanks

The latest database update is now over on the main site. This will be the last regular update. As far as I can tell all the PoWs from the Western Front in the ICRC records are now listed in our database.

Perhaps in due course the ICRC will release their records for the Balkan theatre of operations.

Thanks to all who have contributed to the database over the last two years but especially to Mack who's help has been invaluable.

Please continue to post any updates to the information contained in the database or indeed names of PoWs who I might have missed.
