My grandfather dies ibn the early 60's before I was born

Thomas Alastair Dunbar

I have his day book of E22 from 24 August 1944 till 24th May 1945. He was put in charge of the Red Cross and clothing sotres when transfferred to E22 on 24th August 1944. The Day book recounts the full Death March. I am currently transcribing it to electronic form and it seems my Granddad was something of a stirrer by nature. Most happy to share it when I have completed the task
