WWII PoW tag and medals auctioned

Breaking News

Medals and a dog tag from one of Germany's largest World War II prisoner-of-war (PoW) camps have gone under the hammer at auction in Powys.

The medals and the tag, from Stalag 1VB, belonged to the late DLS Hamer of Kerry, near Newtown, who was a driver in the Army Service Corps.

He was captured in 1943 and spent the rest of the war in captivity until the camp was liberated by the Russians.

The memorabilia was expected to make about £200, but was sold for £80.
