PostSubject: French P.O.W   18/11/2011, 22:55

Okay I'm throwing out a loose one. My sons partner came across the military papers of a former French P.O.W. WW 2. These were found in an alley on a rainy day in Vancouver. It also includes a photo album pre-war of times in the UK, Austria, etc. The gentleman obviously moved to Canada after the war and resided in Vancouver. I'm guessing he passed away and his place was cleared out and what ever personnel effects of no interest or value to the landlord were hucked out. I have contacted the military attache in Ottawa at the French embassy who put me onto the area of where he was born. The authorities there seemed more concerned about how I got their e-mail address. Told me that this fella didn't exist in their records. He was a chauffeur by profession and divorced. He did his POW time in Austria. Any one got any ideas who I could contact on this. I did have two former soldiers retired in France say thy would check, but they seemed to have dropped out of that idea. I have scanned all the papers and can pass them on to any one interested.

Appreciate any assistance offered.

Hardrations .. if he resided in Vancouver, maybe his name is still in the phone book and he may also have been a member of the Legion (Canadian that is, not Foreign) .. I can check local phone listings if of any help.
