Aberdeen & District Prisoners of War Bureau Index The Bureau was formed during the First World War to provide support for the families of soldiers from the North East of Scotland that had been taken prisoner during the conflict. Initially it only covered the Gordon Highlanders, but later individuals from other Regiments and other services were covered, including the Merchant Navy. The coverage of the Bureau therefore extended from Aberdeen City to the counties of Aberdeenshire, Banffshire and Kincardineshire.
