PG 146 Postcard, Address Side

Captured on 2/3/43 at Sedjenane, Tunisia while serving with 15 Platoon, C Company, 16 DLI, Evan Darlington would have probably passed through either Camp PG 98 (Sicily) or PG 66 (Capua) before being assigned to Camp PG 146, from which this postcard was sent home to his sister Annie, in July 1943. The story of his capture, as related by his nephew Roy Mills, was as follows: as C Company advanced up the hill, Darlington was ordered by a Sergeant to attend to a man who had been seriously wounded in the hands and who was lying in a shell hole. The attack stalled and Darlington was among the many C Company men who were captured. The man he was with subsequently died of his wounds.

NEXT: with fellow POWs on an Italian Farm.
