National Archives

If you look at our permanent links (Video, Audio, and other WW2 Links) on the right you will see a link to the National Archives found by Catherine. If you click on the link, scrolling down will take you to bundle HO 396, a bundle of documents relating to the internment of aliens during WW2. Catherine drew my attention to this document regarding interned Jews, a letter from the interment camp commandant to the Home Office.


Browsing around further, I located this document:


This is the document authorising the release of Ferdinando Granelli, my maternal grandfather. It was quite a shock finding it, but now I know the exact date he was released. I never saw him again as he died in 1945.
