Prisoner of War

Thousands of young men from the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand were sent to Greece in 1941 to fight a battle they had no chance of winning. Many were then left behind and had to endure four long years as prisoners of war. They survived this ordeal by a mixture of fortitude, ingenuity and a certain sense of humour. This site is a tribute to those men who were imprisoned in Stalag 18A, Wolfsberg, Austria from 1941 to 1945 .

See our sister site

Brian Kaighin lives in Durban South Africa. His speciality is the Siege and Relief of Ladysmith and during the 14 years that he lived in Ladysmith he researched the subject of the siege in depth. A 'by product' of that research was the compilation of a list of casualties commencing from the start of hostilities to the lifting of the siege on 2nd march 1900. This list of some 13000 names includes all the names that he came across during the reading of hundreds of books, dairies and letters and in the case of the deaths, how they died/where they were buried/memorials and much more information. If anyone is looking for information on a relative he would be pleased to pass on what he has.
