Alfred Leon worked on the merchant ships along side my dad, James Alcock, both taken prisoner

August 11, 2009

Dear Mac,
I am looking for my uncle Alfred Leon worked on the merchant ships along side my dad, James Alcock. My dad served on the Vandyck but unfortunately became a prisoner of war, and spent his time in blechammer, because dad would never speak of this time in his life we have never found out what happened to uncle Alfred Leon or weather he was a prisoner alongside my dad. Since dads death we have found photos of dad as a prisoner along with other inmates but not sure weather any of these are our uncle Alfred.

Looking forward to your reply
