Part 1 - "Missing in Action - Believed POW"

 Chapter 4 - Transportation of POW

The initial transport of POW from the battlefield is by military truck from a holding pen to a rear transit camp, where officers are separated from other ranks.

Depending on their importance, either of senior rank or likely sources of intelligence, officers then are taken to base camps by air or submarine.

Other ranks are later moved either A. By Sea or B. By Land by trains. (Click on these links to go straight to either section).

This chapter considers the use of both of these forms of transport from ANZAC POW captured in North Africa by the Germans, and then handed over as Italian POW.
