The Times, Saturday, Oct 06, 1951; pg. 5; Issue 52125; col C
Pte. F. P. Steer, of the Gloucestershire Regiment, previously listed as missing, now listed as POW.
The Times, Saturday, Dec 29, 1951; pg. 4; Issue 52195; col D
List of POWs from the Gloucestershire Regiment:
Pte F. P. Steer.

Here is some bits from some Ex-POWs from the Gloucesters:
