    South Lancashire Regt man

    Recommended Posts

    I recently acquired a WW1 Trio and some documents to 10014 Pte Frederick Stockham, Father in Law of my next door neighbour.  I am trying to find out more about him as he appears to have been a PoW, possibly in Russia.  Have attached one of the documents.  I also have a copy of the letter signed by King George V, welcoming him home after PoW release. Can anybody please help with some info on him?  Much appreciated.  Dudley

    He was captured at Mons, not wounded but in a field hospital, in August 1914. Have a look here 


    This site http://www.warringtonmuseum.co.uk/local-history/south-lancashire-prisoners-of-war-relief-parcels/ says he was held in Doeberitz (as does one of his POW cards) and Heilsberg, I imagine 33263 is his POW number.

    The POW cards from the ICRC are attached.
