Help needed with ww2 French officer research


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I own a group of medals and documents to confirmed Colditz POW Capt Jean Tarrade.

His Legion D’Honour recommendation says that he made 3 escape attempts prior to being sent to Colditz and I would love to find out more information. After the French were removed, he was in Oflag X-C at Lubeck and organised the French resistance movement within the camp and subsequently disarmed the guards and secured the town upon liberation.

Does anybody know how I can research this man further? French pows are not my usual bag.

I have posted the group on ‘My POW collection’ thread on the Great Britain section of this forum.

Many thanks!
