Mystery WW2 Sailor - Marlag und Milag Nord Prison Camp
« on: 17 August 2017 12:17:16 pm »

Hi there - I have this photo of an unknown sailor, found in my Dad's prisoner of war diary when he was held at Marlag und Milag Nord, Westertimke during WW2.

I presume from his uniform that he was in the Royal Navy, but can anybody confirm that and maybe shed some light on the serial number on the reverse? Is it a service number or ship id maybe?

Thanks for your help.

I suspect the serial number has nothing to do with the person in the photo but was used by the photo processor to catalog the photos.
