“I have been delighted by the information that Paul has been able to uncover relating to my late grand-father’s experiences in WW1 and his captivity in a POW camp. When and where he was captured, his injuries and where he was taken to were previously unknown to the family but we now have a very clear picture.

“The report that I received also included a lot of additional commentary about the conditions which service personnel had to endure and gave a great insight in to what my grandfather’s day to day life would have been like, even down to how they entertained themselves to keep morale up. 

“Paul presented the information quickly and in an easy to read summary format with scanned copies of original records to support his commentary. I have been delighted to share this with our family. “
