    Hi Einir,

    There`s a forum member John Dixon who will be able to help I think. Visit his website


    Insert the word `Norman` into the search box and it will bring up the matches I had a go but could only find one Tynside Scottish but not from Edinburgh? There`s others from 10 and 11th DLI .I could list them but its John Dixons research so I would rather you speak/contact him :)

    Thanks to the info and advice here I've managed to get a copy of a post card from the International Red Cross for my grandfather lance corporal Norman Ross. 4439816, and details of his transfers around pow camps, I've not seen this info anywhere else. It took from April 2014 to November 2015, but it came. I had almost given up as you can no longer request this.

    Second World War archives: Research suspended


    In light of the ongoing revision of the rules for access to the ICRC archives, the research service is currently suspended.

    The rules for access to the ICRC archives are currently being revised in order to take account of new international data protection standards. This means that it is still not possible to process requests for information about individuals who were registered by the Central Prisoners of War Agency during the Second World War.

    We are therefore unable to accept any new requests, unless you can prove the humanitarian nature of your request.

    We will make further announcements in 2016 about the resumption of this service. We encourage you to consult our website regularly for updates.

    Thanks again
