Is this my father?

Postby callbrian » Thu May 27, 2010 5:54 pm

Hi,
I am posting the attached photograph for one of my learners at our local family history course.
She is hoping someone may recognise him. She thinks he was a Russian detainee and disappeared about 1950ish. My learner was born in the Soham area of Cambridgeshire and her mother never revealed very much information regarding him, only to say his name was Nikolai.
Any helpful information or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Brian

Hi
further to my original post, I can now add the following detail.
He was of Ukranian origin and was serving with the Italian army, so may have been either a detainee or POW.
