SUBMITTING POW DETAILS to be included on this website
So many emails are received asking for names and details of POWs to be added to the website, that it is more than our small team of volunteers can cope with, and the backlog of unanswered emails is increasing every day.
Until now, the team has made a document from the information submitted, then added the name and the document to the 'Names' page of the website, as well as any photos or other documents sent in, then replied to the person who submitted the information. To reduce the amount of work involved we are asking you to prepare a document yourself about the POW concerned, and this will be added to the website as it is.
If you would like to submit details of a POW for inclusion on the website, please download the document below, fill in the details (without deleting anything that is already shown on the form). The document is compatible with Word and ODT formats. Then email the document as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make the subject of your email 'NEW NAME'.
This email address is only for submitting the POW Details document which you can download below. If you wish to make contact about anything else please use email@example.com.
When filling in the details you will see that there is a section with the title 'More Details'.
Here you can write anything you wish about the POW concerned and his experiences as a prisoner of war.
There is a place to include your email address if you wish to do this, so that anyone can contact you in the future about this POW. You can ask for your email address to be deleted later if necessary. Please do not include other contact details (eg postal address and phone number) unless you are absolutely sure that you want to do this. Bear in mind that the information on this website is visible from anywhere in the World.
If you have photos, you can add them to the document under the 'More Details' section; or send them as attachments.
If you have other documents you wish to submit, just add them as attachments too.
