But how would he have ended up on the charge to Oberlangen (Stalag VI-c) with the 1st Polish Armoured Division (if that's what happened)??

Beats me.

You have a lot of research ahead of you, and by research I mean looking through primary documents, not just searching on t'net. Someone has already suggested you obtain his service record, which will probably contain the answers to every question you have. Searching for a British soldier's record I'd start with the archives at Kew (but I don't know the specifics of how you would go about it).

I've always found the fun is in the journey. Researching at our National Archives is my idea of a good time.

Good luck.
