Tim,
Many thanks. Do you know where and when he was captured? Troutbeck, Windermere, I take it, is where he was living post war.

Hi Charlie,
It's solely the mention that of the Exonerated Officer on the MIC that made me think Lt Jackson had been a POW.  No other evidence and I assume you've already been through the ICRC "Jackson" list. 
Troutbeck is the post-war address on the MIC.  He married there too.
Cheers
Tim

Also

Thanks again Tim,
2/Lts Miles, Longworth & Harrison are all in the roll, strange that quite a few Officers seem to be missing from the ICRC database. I can imagine I may have missed the odd one but four so far from the same Bn?

Lt Taylor isn‘t in the roll, so perhaps he turned up again.

I‘ll go through the Officers roll for the Manchesters in the near future, 128 Officers are on it. In the meantime let me know if you find anymore.

Hi Charlie,
I wonder if they are recorded as posted to 90th Bgd or some other term?
Harry Taylor MC was assumed dead.

Gill,
Attachments must be less than 1Mb in total per post. If the photos exceed this amount either resize them or post them individually.

I would have thought they would be better in the 16th Bn section of the „photo and postcard“ board, they will get „buried“ and be hard to find in this thread.

The database has been updated again. Thanks to Tim some 17th Bn Officers have been added. The repatriation dates for quite a few of the existing officer entries have also been added. With the help of a couple of members on the „Feldgrau Forum“ http://feldgrau.pytalhost.com I have been able to establish the locations of some of the German medical units.

The database has been updated again with a few corrections.
