Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech UK Alien Entry Cards #austria-czech


Further to the discussion about UK Alien Entry Cards, I was lucky enough
to obtain a copy of my late step-Grandfather's 1939 UK Alien Entry Card
and his Austrian Reisepasse and other documents >from the Australian
National Archives. He fled >from Vienna to London in Juy 1939 (by air)
and was interned in May 1940 before being transported to Australia on
the infamous HMT DUNERA as a stateless enemy alien.

Strangely though photographs and some other details had been blanked out
or removed - but I do not know if this occurred in London, or on arrival
in Australia.

So if anyone has any links with Australia, then possibly an online
search might be useful -
