The WW2 Escape Lines Memorial Society bases its research on the collective archives of the members. The scope and detail available is vast and unable to be presented on this site.
Many members have specific areas of expertise, based upon their own life experiences or their personal research into the history of family members and friends. Information is always based upon reputable sources, especially primary evidence from personal accounts and personal archives, the Public Records Office and the records of associations related to WW2. All research is cross-checked between several sources to ensure authenticity.
We hold information on:
- The Escape Lines of WW2
- Escaper and Evader stories and Escaper / Evader lists
- Helper stories and Helper lists
- PRO details of Escapers and Evaders
- MIS-X Escaper / Evader lists
- Post WW2 Escaper / Evader / Helper details
- And much more………..
In addition ELMS is fortunate to have excellent contacts with many other organisations that share our aims of preserving the history of the Escape Lines of WW2 and Escape and Evasion in general, up to the present day.

Book Lists – Much has been published about the Escape Lines of WW2. Some books have been privately printed and are only available privately; others only had a limited print run and are no longer available. Some publications deal with specific areas or personalities; others give an overview. In addition, there are academic papers that have been submitted in the course of study and journals and publications of various associations.
Rather than publish a ‘book list’ that could be misleading, the Society is well placed to recommend books and articles that are most suited to particular areas of interest or research. Please contact us for further information. email@example.com
