    hello all,
    I'm looking for lists of British POW's taken at Dieppe during the raid?
    I want to cross reference this with my lists for the Royal Scots Fusiliers, who after Dunkirk seem to have flocked to No3 Commando to get their own back!
    any help would be very appreciated.

    cheers
    Iain

    The casualty lists on Find my Past may give you some idea if you input the unit details . May not give you all ,and may be a trawl but it`s a start?

    I have the Phantom details somewhere of KIA and POW.

    Not many, but it'll be an obscure one that most wouldn't know/care/miss.

    Leave it with me.
