A 1941 Christmas Card from Oflag VIIC
This is the front of a second postcard sent by Driver Moreton Wilson RASC (Service No T/60834) to his wife and four children back home in Workington West Cumberland (now Cumbria) for Christmastime 1941. Moreton's Prisoner of War number was 668.
According to recent information kindly supplied to the family by the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva, Switzerland, Moreton was taken prisoner during the Battle of Amiens on 20 May 1940 at either Doullens or Albert. Moreton was known to his friends as 'Joe'. Sadly, Moreton died in a German hospital in May 1943. He is buried in the CWGC Cemetery at Krakow Rakowicki in Poland.
