i have no info regarding this page, but I am looking for a man named Mr. Ricky who was a POW in WWII. He was in either Stalag 8B (Lamsdorf) or Starsgard. Mr. Ricky was a Maori friend of my father who is now deceased. My dad named my youngest brother after Mr. Ricky, but the 2 men never did hear from each other again. Dad died in 1963 due to after-effects of the war. Can anyone help me find him or his family? Thank you.
