Missing POW

DAILY RECORD FRIDAY 21 SEPTEMBER 1945

ONE ITALIAN DIES – ONE VANISHES

The occupant of a lower bunk in a two-tier bed at an Italian POW camp at Blairvaddich, Shandon, Dumbartonshire, was wakened early yesterday morning by the sound of gurgling coming from the bunk above.

Blood began to trickle down on top of him and when he got up to see what was wrong he found the man in the top bunk with his throat cut. The man was unconscious and died very soon afterwards.

A blood-stained clasp knife was found near the bed.

It was later discovered that one of the occupants of the hut was missing, and late last night he had not been found.
