Pte Alldread's early discharge suggests that he may have been repatriated early, possibly on grounds of sickness, which is perhaps why he does not appear in the Official Register of PoWs for WW2, although he was included on a formal list of those repatriated in correspondence files at The National Archives, Kew.
