Hi. My name is Scott. Thanks for reading my first post on this forum. I look forward to reading what you and others shared in the forums.
Why I'm in Feldgrau forums:
- In 1938, my German grandfather was conscripted into the Wehrmacht 79 Infantry Division.
In 1944, during Operation Wellhit in German Occupied Boulogne, France he was captured a POW by Canadians.
Captive until 1948 in UK POW Camp, after he was released, he journeyed home to post-war Badden-Wurttemburg, Germany.
In 1948, my grandfather journeyed back to wife (my grandmother) and two young children (my mom and uncle) who resented his "taking charge" of family after 10 years disappeared while fighting war and POW camp.
Since 2010 I've translated, researched, and hoped to publish his handwritten journals, drawings, and photos of my grandfather's 1938-1948 Wehrmacht campaigns and POW captivity. I hope to learn from you and to also contribute whatever I can to this forum. Below is a page from one of his private POW journals.
