I obtained this set of dogtags from EBay a couple weeks ago. The seller had them split into 2 lots. I won the POW tag lot and another person won the other lot. By chance we figured out who each other was and made a deal to reunite the tags. Thank you USDog!

S/Sgt Ernest Hall was a gunner with the 459th BG shot down on a mission to Budapest on April 3, 1944. I was able to validate the gefangenummer on the POW dogtag was issued to him.


Glad you were able to get them back together, superb collection of items and ephemera.

A bit late to the party, but here are mine, just acquired as a gift from a buddy of mine: https://imgur.com/a/HR97lLf

 

There's quite a bit of info about both Stalag II-B and Oflag II-E out there. I assume these tags belonged to a Pole or a Russian, unless anyone has any ideas how I can search records for these camps (if they exist.)

Those tags definitely did not come from an American, most likely a Pole or Russian, but they are real! I dont have a way to look those numbers up.
