Gnr. Fred Mycock Royal ArtilleryI have been told that my father, Fred Mycock, was held in Stalag 398. Apparently this was at Pupping. I believe that that camp was in the valley of the river Danube. However, when he was alive, we went to Austria and found the site of the old camp. I do not recall it being in Pupping. In fact I am pretty certain it was not. The camp we found was in a small village, just off a fairly major road. It had a small sawmill, with a log flume from further up in the hills behind. The camp was access via a narrow unmade road up a narrow ravine, alongside the log flume and small river. The hut foundations were still visible. The track continued up into the hills. It was there that my father worked, felling trees, which were sent down the flume. The flume was fed from the dammed-up river further up the valley.
Editor's Note: Most of the Stalag POW Camps had work camps, known as arbeitskommandos, where the men would be housed close to the work they had been allocated.Hugh Mycock
William John Turrell 1st Battalion Royal East Kent RegimentMy uncle Bill - William John Turrell was born in 1919, Bromley Kent. I have been told he was with the royal east kent regiment (the buffs). Sadly, my uncle passed away in 1983. He never really spoke of the war days, but I guess, knowing what I know now, I can see why he never spoke about things.
I have just been given a photo of my uncle. I believe the photo was taken in a prison of war camp in september 1944 at Molln, I believe that this was in Pupping Austria, camp number Stalag 398. His POW number was 155006.
My uncle Bill is the big man in the centre of the back row, I don't know who the other men are but it would be nice to find out.David Turrell
