Ellingford family

by Rick Smallman 10 May 2010

My Grandfather and Grandmother on my Mother’s side were John and Mary (known as Ann)who lived at 66 Sussex Street, Brighton. I have been reading some wartime letters and there is a postcard from John Ellingford with the phrases Gefangenennummer 19766 which means Prison Number.
Stammlarger XX B 556 which should be a Stalag camp in Germany and the card was written in 1944. Any help would see the family tree come together as I have found another Ellingford who was killed at Arnhem. Regards
