Thank you "TheOther." Yes, I have read that wikipedia article in my research, but it lacks detail. My father did indeed desert "probably" from the "Volksdeutscher." I remember him telling me that he went to Switzerland.
As with most WW II vets, he would not talk of the war. The problem I have is trying to understand, and find information of the procedures of,
1. How Volksdeurscher's transferred to the Polish Free, and in my fathers case in what year.
2. How long was he in the Volksdeutscher?
3. Did he see action while with the German Army?
4. After deserting, did he go strait to Italy, or the UK?
I just do not know how find any records of the above, if they exist at all, or where to look. It is the details that I am looking for.
