My father, William Facer, was a Royal Marine from 1937 to 1947 and was stationed in Crete in 1941, from where he was captured and taken to Stalag 306XVIIID.
As far as I am aware, he remained there until the end of the War, although he often spoke about being held in a Stalag at St. Anton, in Austria. Unfortunately, I have not been able to identify which Stalag this may have been. The only photographs that I have of him during the war are ones that he sent to his father from Stalag 306XVIID. Sadly, the photographs are not date stamped so I cannot identify when they were sent.
At the time of his capture my father would have been 20 years old. Although he did not pass until October 1993, he seldom spoke about his time in the Marines or during the war, so my knowledge is very limited.
