Greetings, Researching my great grandfather John Christian William Handford b. 31/03/1903 d. 21/01/1978. He joined 17/06/1940. He served in North Africa in 1941-1942. He was captured and was a POW from 20/06/1942-12/05/1945. I'd love to know what other information might be gleaned from the attachment. There's another annotation simply stating "Advised Gold Prod. Com. P. F. No. 21794. Everything I've read thus far would suggest he was captured at the 1942 Siege of Tobruk; "the greatest military reversal of South African arms" - Major DB Katz.
