Default Dieppe

My uncle, Robert Adams was also a POW as a result of the Dieppe raid. He was a sapper and a sergeant. Badly wounded, his life was saved by German doctors. The family history says that he was repatriated on a Red Cross exchange before the war ended. He did lose one eye and succumbed to shrapnel in his heart about 10 yrs after the war.
I have been trying to find out where he may have been interned. I see from a post on this thread that he may have been at Lamsdorf.
Any suggestions as to how I would trace his war experience after Dieppe?

Thanks a lot

Charles James Stocks is my Uncle (my mother's brother)! My mother was Mary Jean Stocks and she passed away in January 1991.

I found your post rather intriguing, as it listed my mother's immediate family (parents and siblings).
