This copied page came with some medals and is a tabulated list of surrenders and the outcomes of the Courts of Inquiry. Does anyone know the source document as I have several more I would like to look up!

Hello Paul

The document is in Kew - WO108/372.

It is very interesting.

Hi Paul
That group came from my collection.
I obtained a copy of the "Surrenders" document from Kew some years ago:an expensive exercise (262 A-3 pages plus Air-mail postage)! It took me quite a while to work through it and "marry" relevant details with the SAFF Casualty Rolls on my computer but it was worth the effort .
Maybe it is now available for download

Hi Henk,
I guessed they were once yours from the labels. A very nice group which I am very pleased to look after..
The document is available at Kew and has not been digitised so still an expensive photocopying exercise even without the postage. I might go and see if I can photograph the pages although I try to avoid Kew wherever possible. Have you considered scanning your photocopies as a PDF?
Regards
Paul
