    Thomas Lawrence Williams

    Stew. Harry Little SS. Orama

    My father Harry Little survived the sinking of Orama. He was a POW in Stalag 13. I'm happy to share any information I have, and very interested to hear from any survivors, etc. The website contains a picture of the camp ID of Tom Williams, a steward on Orama. I have my father's camp ID. He was also a steward. I believe Tom Williams was in correspondence with my late mother.

    Arthur Richardson

    My father, Arthur Richardson, was a POW in Stalag 13, I believe from 1940 onwards. We have only just acquired his war medals from the MOD after all these years. He often speaks of some of his comrades during these difficult times. We would very much like to put him in touch with any fellow POW, as time is now running out for dad, as he is 84

    Howard J. Bohle 427th Bomb Sqdn. 303rd Bomb Group

    2Lt Howard J Bohle, USAAF was a pilot of a B-17G Flying Fortress and was shot down on 29th od April 1944. He was assigned to the 427th Bomb Squadron of the 303rd "Hells Angels" Bomber Group flying out of Moleworth, England. He would have made the forced march to Stalag XIII in Nuremburg and later to Stalag VII in Moosburg at the end of the war. He was from North Dakota and was my favorite uncle. He wouldn't share stories about his experiences as a POW and wondered if anyone knew him as a prisoner?
