"Miss Douglas, Whinfield, Clonavon, Ballymena, has received a postcard from her brother, Pte. William Douglas, South African Irish (3rd S.A. Inf), informing her that he is a prisoner of war in Germany. He states that he is well treated and very comfortable but is in need of a parcel. Pte Douglas was home in Ballymena on leave last October and after being home on leave again at Christmas, he was sent to Egypt. He has been in France since Easter and came through the recent heavy fighting in which the South Africnas were engaged. Pte Douglas, who is a son of the late Mr. William Douglas, Harryville, holds a medal for participation in the Zulu War. He was resident in the Belgian Congo when the present war broke out and he nstantly offered his service to the Empire coming through the whole campaign in German West Africa, with General Botha, without a scratch."

Hi John

There are Four W. Douglas's listed on the Medal Roll, so hard to tell unless we knew his regiment.

Salute
