World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII


Stalag XXIb was situated at Warthelager near Posen.

John Albert E Hammond initially Royal Artillery, and Blackwatch. 2nd World War I would like to talk to anybody who knows my grandad (or is familiar with the name), he was captured at Dunkirk (whilst in Blackwatch troop) and became at POW. He spent time in Dresden and was marched to Stalag 344 and then onto Stalag XXI-B. My grandad wrote to a man named Christopher John Bergoine shortly after the war. I believe they were in one of the above camps together, where he helped this man escape. Please contact me if you can shed any light on this please. Thank you.

I have found photos of my father on the Prisoner of war site linked through the Arnhem Archive site both run by Mark Hickman. My father appears in Stalag IXC (Bad Sulza), however I have recently received POW papers that confirm he was once in Dulag XIB (this is how the papers are stamped)and since contacting Mark Hickman it seems that Dulag and Stalag XIB are one and the same. Perhaps he should be added to Stalag XIB, I'm not sure? he was Private Richard Robert McLarnon (known as Dick McLarnon) of 2nd Batallion Parachute Regiment, Army No.6984899, POW No.200264. captured at Arnhem, originally of the 1st Batallion Royal Ulster Rifles (Gliderborne Infantry) 6th Airlanding Brigade.


I think this is taken in Stalag 21b, a hut at Xmas 1944

Good Gracious Godfrey!

These photos recently came into my possession.
