Hi, Wondering if somebody with good knowledge of the DLI could help me? My great Grandfather was taken POW on 9th June 1940 Rouen. I am curious to learn what him and the 9th Battalion were doing up until their capture. Where they were fighting etc. I understand that he may not have been captured in Rouen exactly and may be somewhere close by. Also if anyone knows of any info on him. I know some info of his time as POW but would love to know more if it is out there! Thanks in advance Name: Michael Grant. Date of Birth: 17/10/1914. Age: . Place of Birth: Gateshead.
