One thought on “Canadian army records”

  1. I would much appreciate your help in finding records of 2 Canadian soldiers in WW2. Their names are:
    – Captain J H Paton
    – Lieut Edward Leese
    These men were prisoners of war during 1944-1945 in Germany. The camp was OFLAG XllB, in Hadamar, West Germany.
    Any records, letters or diaries would be very welcome. My father, Guy Nicolson was in the same camp during those years.
