    Default Stalag IXC POW tag

    This one is in fantastic shape and the lettering (to my untrained eye) looks the same as another one posted here back in 2009 as well as images from "the Pegasus archives" that detailed the camp.

    POW Tag

    The unique "S", as well as the other letters (t, a, l and g) seem to match up. Also the space between the IX and C.

    But would be overjoyed if someone confirmed that it is real.

    Any way to ID the soldier to this tag?

    Any thoughts?

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    From what I have learnt over the years here, it looks good to me.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It's original, of course...But you must know the country of the soldier, French, Belgian....In france, we can find the names but not the numbers.
    Ther is one place with good informations


    But if your tag is not for a French, it's not helpful to write.
