Hi guys, I don't frequent this part of the forum but I thought I'd ask you for some help.
One of my mates granddad was recently on a trip to Lanzarote and had his wallet stolen. Inside his wallet was his fathers Prisoner of War ID tag from the 'Stalag Luft XII-A' prison camp. His father who had been a Glider borne soldier had been captured during failed efforts in Market Garden. I'll let you know if I can get the specific ID number, but in the mean time, I would really appreciate it if you could keep your ears open and your eyes peeled for any tag being sold or offered to you from this camp, particularly from the Lanzarote area. I'll enclose a picture, not of his tag, but of one identical to the missing one apart from its serial number.
It's all he really had left of his fathers and I'd really like to try and return it too him if possible.
If you have anything to input, even if it's just advice on the matter, I'd appreciate it all. I'll also be sure to update the thread with any updates or developments.
