    Hi to all.
    I am a new member, my first post, I hope it´s on the correct forum.
    My late dad was Gnr R A (bob) Cope with the 68 Med Regt Royal Artillery
    he like many others was captured at Tobruk 19 06 1942 and was sent I believe
    first to Stalag IVa and then for sure to Stalag IVb.
    Anyhow on doing a search for the Flywheel club on your site I found a reference
    on 07 02 2009 titled "Flywheel memories of the open road" and a ref by Kyt of maybe
    there was another similar club.
    The reason for this is I found in my dad´s stuff a membership card to an Auto club
    dated 1942 signed by T Swallow (attached).
    hope somebody finds this interesting.
    I also have found some photos of German troops and P O Ws at funerals and
    a few other things and if anybodys interested I´ll post them on the forum ( this forum
    or please tell me otherwise).

    Hi Steve Just seen your post. My Dad was Gnr N W Monk with 72nd Field. Regt RA. He was reported missing 4/6/42 in North Africa and was sent first as a POW to Italy and then to Stalag 4b ( have dog tag) and Stalag 4c. until released by Allied Forces 1945. Interestingly I have his Auto Club Camp Members Card similar to yours and it is number 182. Might they have known each other ?
