Morning

I've read that POWs were interview at the time of their release by the authorities about their capture and time locked away. Where all AIF members interviewed? If yes where would these interviews be located? Does anyone have a link?

Cheers Clarke

Hi Clarke

The POW statements are held by the NAA - unfortunately they're not digitized
If this link works - you'll find the details to request copies:

Thanks again Frev,

I've got two men to research so it's a good start.
