Rev J.R. Bamber

1940s

Reg Bamber is pictured here in uniform.  He left Wollaston in September 1939 and served as a chaplain, with the rank of Captain, in the Gloucestershire Regiment.  He left England in 1939 and was stationed at a casualty clearing station in France in February 1940.  He was ordered to leave France but was reported missing in July.  In August the news came that he had been taken prisoner and had been “taken into protective custody” in May.  He spent the rest of the war years in a number of POW camps and was finally released at the end of the war and returned to Wollaston in June 1945.
