    Claude Wyatt-Mair British 8th Army

    My Dad, Claude Wyatt-Mair wrote a memoir of his time between 1939 and 1945. He was captured in Tobruk and ended up in Stalag 8c and 8b lamsdorf 344. I am trying to locate anyone who knew him.

    L/Cpl. Charles Arthur Schofield Loyal (North Lancashire) Regiment

    Charles Schofield was a POW at Stalag VIIIC, Konin, Zaganski, in Poland. His POW number was 86946. I think he was captured in 1942. He survived and returned home to Lumb, Rossendale, Lancashire where he married and had a son. He suffered from ill health and died in September 1970, at the age of 47. He is buried in St Michael's C of E graveyard in Lumb. Charles was a Church Warden at St Michael's.

    Charles was the brother of my first cousin three times removed's husband and his son and I were born in the same month in the same year and went to the same schools together, we were good friends. He seldom talked about his experiences as a POW except that he once had an operation, without anesthetic, undertaken by a German army doctor. He was an active man until his final illness, who enjoyed hunting with dogs on the local moors, he kept a greyhound and a Jack Russell terrier. A fine, generous man, who died before his time.
