IGS Bar Burma 1930-32 To The Buffs Taken POW 1943

IGS one bar Burma 1930-32 6282700 PTE E AMOS THE BUFFS

6282700 Pte T Amos 4th Bn The Buffs ( listed with initial T but same regimental number ) was taken POW on the 16th of November 1943 on the Greek Island of Leros

The Battle of Leros was the central event of the Dodecanese Campaign of the Second World War, and is widely used as an alternate name for the whole campaign. The Italian garrison in Leros was strengthened by British forces on 15 September 1943. The battle began with German air attacks on 26 September, continued with the landings on 12 November, and ended with the capitulation of the Allied forces four days later

On the morning of November 16, it became apparent to the British commander, Brigadier Tilney, that his situation was untenable and he surrendered; 3,200 British and 5,350 Italian soldiers went with him into captivity.

The 4th Battalion, The Buffs, in their isolated position, were unaware of the surrender so did not attempt to escape; consequently nearly the whole unit was captured. As with the Buffs, only 90 men from the West Kents managed to escape from the island.
