NOTES

Ken Burgess b 18-10-1916; d 17-12-1981

Personal War Diary quotes “April 28:  Captured at 7 pm in the hills at T. Beach.  Went in under the White Flag by order of the ‘Brigadier’.”  Archivist’s comment:  This presumably refers to the Brigadier i/c at Navplion rather than Brigadier Parrington at Kalamata.

Knew Jack Swinnerton (as soldier, PoW or civilian?)
