Welcome to the boards, Nicholas.

Caroline may not be looking for replies now, several months later.

You can send her a private message - click on her name at the top of one of her posts.
If she still uses the same email address, GR will be able to notify her of your message, and she may be able and willing to access it.

Dear Caroline,

All POWs held by the Japanese are listed at the National Memorial Arboretum at Alrewas in Staffordshire. Check their website and email them for information.

Thank you so much for your welcomed replies! I will most probably take the MOD route.. Thanks again! xxx

WW2 service records are still with the MOD and are not on line.

Look here for how to order them:-

They cost £30 and can take quite a while to arrive (several months).
