Many Jews went from the Isle of Mann  into the Pioneer Corps (a kind of auxilary) and from there into the regular army.   I have been reading about the Ritchie Boys and the use of German Jews as interrogators in general, and have noted that some of these interrogators came from the Pioneer Corps.

My father and his brother (both born in Cologne and traveling on Czech passports) were detained in Pentonville Prison upon their arrival in the UK in June 1940.  My grandmother (also born in Cologne) was detained in a different facility.  I have looked through FindMy Past and tried Kew but can find no record.  Any advice?
