Hi:  Is there a way to cross-reference and research a POW based upon the Stalag number?  If I had a POW German dogtag with the Stalag#...could I find the owner?

Its very difficult. Some Stalag Luft 3 numbers can be traced. If you know a name, sometimes you can get the number. Its MUCH harder to get a name for a number.

Here is a set from Stalag 7A. He was captured 8/29/44 while serving with the Chemical Warfare Service.  I dont know any more than that.

Here is a more recent pick up that I was lucky enough to obtain.

Identified to a B-17 pilot of the 535th BS/381st BG, shot down over Holland 8/19/1943. Held at Stalag Luft 3.

Another one that I picked up at an antique shop recently!

Kurt helped me determine that this was issued to an American POW at Stalag Luft 4.

If anyone can figure out who it was issued to please let me know!
