Hello everyone,

I am currently doing research into German POWs in Australia. I am trying to locate the names of two prisoners in particular, both who I believe were at Holdsworthy camp, and were most likely deported in 1919. Both are buried at the Kranji War Cemetery in Singapore, but there is almost no information about them and, I believe, one of the names is incorrectly spelled.

Could anyone please tell me where/how i might b able to access the deportation lists, or even the prisoner lists at Holdsworthy?

Look forward to hearing from anybody.
