Re: Wantage another Parole town
In Response To: Re: POW in United Kingdom ... ()

Alain,
You can add Wantage to your list of parole towns, apparently
one of the French officers quartered in Wantage, Oxfordshire.
Kept his money in Coutts Bank ( an old established bank, long associated with royalty )
The Vale & Downland museam in Wantage have long cherished an
original letter from the french officer, asking Coutts in London to
send 123, to settle his unpaid bills.
