    Default Identity disc with a difference

    During the German Occupation of the Channel Islands Hitler issued a direct order for any British born people on the Islands to be deported to internment Camps in Germany (the main ones were Biberach, Wurzach and Laufen). I have just picked up a rather large amount of bits and pieces from one man/family. Edmund Richmond was born in Southampton and he was deported from Jersey on the 18th of September 1942. I have attached scans of his identity disc issued in the camp and his photo taken for his camp folder. You will notice he is wearing what looks to be a British battledress blouse which was issued to the internee's in the camp.
    I am still wading through a mass of folders containing lots of associated paperwork from this man's time in the camp, its a great lot and will take me a few weeks to sort out but thought you might like to see his I/D disc.
    All the best from
