Who can help me please finding the link to the roster on Ancestry in regard of the "movement order, listing POWs leaving France for the USA in June 1945 and listed both their US Service numbers and their POW ID numbers!"....Probably I am seeking for the wrong document at Ancestry.

I have a couple of POW tags that I would like to check there.

Thanks from Holland.

In ancestry there are certain ships that brought POWs home in 1945.  The key to finding the movement orders is finding the ship,  then looking through the movement orders. The Admiral Benson is a ship I would focus on. 

 

All New York, Passenger and Crew Lists (including Castle Garden and Ellis Island), 1820-1957

I would guess however those tags are probably not from Americans based on the number range of the XIIA tags and very few Americans were in IVD. Did you buy these in Europe?

Thanks Kurt.

I bought the tags at local flee markets in the Ardennes, about 30 years ago.

Fingers crossed.

Hi,

 

Fantastic pieces, thanks to all of you for sharing! Here is a little part of a grouping which belonged to a 15th AF Air Gunner shot down in may 1944 :

Stalag 12A from a POW serving with the 28th Cavalry reconnaissance Squadron captured 12/12/44.

 

Tag number matches the POW manifest .
