    The belt was supposedly taken from an SS Officer, By Alfred Hudson (British solider) during WW2. I've asked the grandson if he knew his regiment but sadly yet to hear back. So it may be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

    I did find one result that may or may not be our man. The internet search gave me a word document that included the following: (It looks like someone else is also searching for info on Alfred Hudson)

    Subject: New Entry

    I would like to add a new entry into the list of POWs.

    The name of the soldier is Alfred Hudson, he was part of the Royal Scots Regiment. He was held in Lamsdorf from 1940-1945 and his prisoner number was 452.

    I would very much appreciate if he could be added to the list and any further information on his time there I would appreciate the help.

    My contact details are:

    Home number is 01506 413702 (Scotland number)

    Thank you

    John Robertson'

    John I am away on a course at the moment but when I get back I will look on ancestry for you, might find something on there.. The belt and buckle is for an EM (enlisted man) and not an officer unless for some reason he was wearing one!

    Thanks Ben.

    Apologies for the name mix up. My name is Gillan - The message above was found via a website under the name of Ben Robertson. It looks as thought he was also looking for information on a Alfred Hudson.

    After a quick search myself I ended up finding over 50+ Alfred Hudsons that served during WW2 (ummmmm) . I'm yet to hear back from the 'grandson' with regards to his grandfathers regiment. The only information I can go on is the grandsons home address which is Newent (Gloucestershire) - Would that help the search ? Still a needle in a haystack in my eyes as his drill halls may have been situated elsewhere. The grandson is also unable to state if the belt was collected in the U.K or Germany. I'd like to think it was Germany.

    Thank you again for taking the time to help me out. Much appreciated. Should I find any further info I will be sure to keep you updated

    - I may have another item for you to help me with if you don't mind. Will I be ok to drop you a personal message? I have a name and service number - (regards to a RAF great coat) - failing that I will post a new thread via the correct section on the site.

    All the best - Gillan.
