South Wales Borderers POWs in 1914

South Wales Borderers POWs in 1914

This is list of men of the SWB who were Prisoners of War as at Christmas 1914. This was provided by each regiment to Princess Mary, through Sir Ernest Goodhart. The purpose was to pass on to each soldier a Princess Mary Gift Fund 1914 Box. These had already been provided to men on active service in December 1914, and she wanted to extend the gesture, albeit belatedly, to those men captured on or before 25th December 1914. Digitised images of these returns can be viewed at the IWM London research room. 88 men are on the list. In addition, Paul Nixon has identified five others: 11739 Driscoll 10327 James 9155 Kenvin 10628 Perry 9045 Samuels. He has mysteriously discovered a sixth man, 6924 T Johnson.
