His name actually comes up as William Newson of the 197th Field Ambulance- Royal Army Medical Corps. Forces War records has several records but you have to be a member to view them. Fold 3 has his Japanese PoW index card which I have attached. Have you ordered his military records from the MoD?

Hello, thank you very much for your information. Will look into all of this. An Auntie has said she has some records in a tin box in the attic, so I am hoping we might get somewhere with this as well, but thank you very much for your help. Will get back to you if any further help required.

Kind regards Sylvia
