PoWs - Europe List

2/15th Battalion POWs Information

This is an updated list of 2/15th Battalion POWs from Katrina Kittel.  This is an important document for the Battalion as it gives an even clearer picture of what happened to a large number of its members after the "Benghazi Handicap".  

The list of 2/15th Bn men and the summary document are the continuation of the research into the history AIF PoWs that was commenced by Bill Rudd. Tony Rudd has also assisted with the data management and presentation.

Bill's main website is http://aifpow.com/.  The page that mentions 2/15th men is:  http://aifpow.com/part_4__nominal_roll_all_evades/chapter_4__ninth_division/20th_brigade  

Well worth a look.
