  • My husband's father CCMS H R (Bert) Hansen was also captured at Meteren on the same day. Bert was incarcerated in 6 prisons in France and Belgium but escaped from 2 of them. He was a free man in Belgium when the Armistice was announced. My husband is aware that Colonel Rudd was Bert's solicitor before Bert died in 1951, also from cancer. I have had contact with several other families of soldiers from the 2nd Entrenching Bn who were also captured on the same day in April 1918 but this is the first time I knew that Col. Rudd had also been captured at Meteren. I have just finished writing a detailed account of Bert Hansen's unique story as a POW in WW1 and it is just about to go to the printer. How can I get Bert Hansen's details on to this Online Cenotaph? Kath Hansen
