    Wink I found this STALAG VI F tag at a flea market!

    So today I went to the flea market in Brussels, expecting the usual crap I was digging around in some old boxes when is found this little bugger!
    At first glance I thought it was just a Belgian army dog tag but when I turned it around I saw it was actually a Stalag tag!
    Can anyone here give me some more information on the tag, can I find the owner somehow?

    I would like to know that too as I have quite a few 'half tags' - but I think records would have been all destroyed after the war for the thousands of interned.

    I am pretty sure those records are available today. I found them once looking for records of a friend of mine that was shot down over Regensberg. But I'll be damned if I can remember how I got to them.

    Records of British Army (only) PoW's captured by the Germans are available on Ancestry.

    So what I was saying earlier is that I have all these half tags that would be good to research more - a project for the Winter months of this year perhaps?

    Hi Dan,

    I just picked the top tag in your photo, marked 'STALAG 344 No. 32588' and have found:
    Private R S Dickson, RAMC, service no. 7376690, POW no. 32588, incarcerated in Stalag 344, Lambinowice, Poland.

    I'll search the others later.

    Cheers, Tom
