Internment by British. British Army records #general

Regarding the internment of people by the British on the Isle of Man. The
English genealogy magazine "Family Tree Magazine" carried a two-part
article "The internment of enemy civilians in wartime Britain" by Tom Wood
in its November and December 1998 issues.

Also, the very well known and recently-deceased architect Harry Seidler,
who was responsible for several key buildings in Sydney, Australia and
elsewhere, kept a daily diary of his internment by the British. Although
the book is now out of print, second-hand copies are available on the www.
It is "Internment, the Diaries of Harry Seidler May 1940 - October 1941",
edited by Janis Wilton, published by Allen & Unwin 1986. ISBN 0 86861 915
9.

Regarding the WW2 records for the British Army, three years ago I obtained
a copy of my dad's records from:
