Biographical information

  • Lance Corporal Courlander returned to New Zealand on board Mooltan.

    It was reported in the Evening Post, 20 December 1945, p. 8, that Lance Corporal Courlander had been found guilty of helping the enemy and sentenced to 15 years' hard labour. Having been taken prisoner of war it appears that he assisted the Germans by doing broadcasting to Britain and endeavouring to persuade British prisoners of war to join the British Free Corps to fight the Russians.
