Comments: I'm looking for anyone who might remember my uncle, Albert Ellsworth Boothroyd. He was 18 years old when he was reported MIA on November 30, 1950 near Somindong, North Korea. He died on January 31, 1951 in a POW camp in Death Valley along the Yalu River.

On June 28, 2000 I personally spoke with Capt. William R. Shadish (Ret.) who was the POW camp physician who witnessed Albert's death.

If there is anyone who may remember my uncle, I would appreciate hearing from them. I would also like hearing from anyone who survived that POW camp. I understand the conditions of that camp were as follows: Death Valley was a bad camp to be in. Temperatures were at 40 degrees below zero. There was housing in an old mining camp in a very narrow valley along a stream. They maybe saw two hours of light per day becuase the valley was so tall. Twenty to 30 men were packed into an eight-foot square room. There was a row of apartment rooms made out of mud with thatch roofs and no doors. A poncho was used to cover the door, but the body heat was the only thing that kept them alive. They were given just one bowl of millet each day to eat. Each day a horse-drawn cart would carry 15 to 20 bodies away. Allegedly they were buried, but the ground was frozen and from what I had been told, it wasn't until the surviving POW's left the camp that they saw the stacked and frozen bodies of the deceased. During this time, starvation, exposure to the cold, pneumonia and dysentery made its way through the camp.

It would mean so much to me to hear from others who may have been at Death Valley.

City and State: PLANO TX

Unit:

Service or Relationship: FAMILY MEMBER

Comments: I am looking for first hand information that anyone might have on my uncle, Kenneth E. Oliver. Uncle Kenneth was a PFC in Battery C, 38 FA 2nd Infantry Division. My father thinks that he might have driven one of the trucks. He was 19 years old, from Jefferson County, Alabama near Birmingham. He was about 6 feet tall, slim with light brown hair and fair skin.

All information indicates that Kenneth was captured on November 30, 1950, and one listing of POW data indicates that he died on January 24, 1951. From what I have learned from my family, some of my uncle’s fellow prisoners reported (I don’t know when or to whom) that Kenneth died in camp due to malnutrition and dysentery. I have never seen any information to that extent and my grandparents died several years ago, so I think that any letter explaining my uncle’s death is now lost.

Sergeant Ted Sprouse of C Battery wrote the manuscripts for a recently released book; "Limbo on the Yalu....and beyond" by Robert Berens. According to this book, Sgt. Sprouse, Sgt. Don Cloud, and Sgt. Sam Chapman were captured with 16 other men from 38 FAB, Bat C. They were marched for 6 weeks before arriving at Camp 5 on January 25, 1951. If my uncle was with this group, and if his reported date of death was the 24th of January, then he must have died enroute to that camp. Perhaps the reported date of death is wrong, or he may have been sent to another camp. Any information that you have would be much appreciated. Our family is working toward recovering his remains if possible and returning them to the U. S. for burial, so it is important to know if he was buried outside the camp or along the trail before getting to camp.

Thank you for any help.

Comments: My grandfather, Don Cloud, served in the Korean war and was a POW at camp #5. He served in the 38th Artillery Battalion, 2nd Infantry division. He died about 6 years ago, but his friend and fellow POW, Ted Sprouse had written manuscripts about their experience. Robert J. Berens wrote a book about Ted based on his manuscripts. It is entitled, "Limbo on the Yalu...and beyond!". It is an inspirational book, telling of them being captured and their march to camp #5, and experiences.

If you would like to purchase the book, go to www.amazon.com and click on books, then type in the search "Limbo on the Yalu...and beyond!" and you can purchase it online. I thought I would just share this book with ya'll, for it holds great information of what they went through, with being captured. Also if anyone knew my grandpa, I would love to hear from you! at aherrman@hiwaay.net


Keywords: Great book Robert Berens wrote of TED SPROUSE manuscripts, of his expeirences in the Korean war. He was part of the 38th Artillery Battalion 2nd infantry division. My grandfather was DON CLOUD, also fought with Ted Sprouse.

Comments: I am looking for anyone who may have served in the 38TH ART BN (105MM) 2 INF Div and you may have been at the Yalu River in November of 1950, who also may have remembered my Uncle Albert Ellsworth Boothroyd. He may have mentioned that he was going to buy land in Vermont when he returned home. He was taken POW, his body never recovered. Can anyone help to find out which camp he may have been at or any more information as to the happenings of that day.
Thank you all and God Bless all of the Veteran's of all War's.

Comments: Hello. I am looking for any information I can on my uncle, William Farrell, RA13315508, Battery C.

He was supposedly captured on 11-30-50 near Kunu-ri, North Korea (or Somindong) and sent to a camp at Pyoktong, North Korea. If anyone knew him, please contact me.

We were told that he died in camp of malnutrition but this was never confirmed.
