Searching for Austrian WW2 Prisoner of War who was held in Worcestershire, England?


I am looking for information on a World War 2 prisoner of war from Austria name Peter Schmidt who was brought to my farm in England every day to work.

I believe he went back to Austria and had a daughter named Heidi.

Regarding the POW camp I believe you mean "Longbridge Camp, Hampton Lovett, Droitwich, Worcester". The National Archives holds some information about POW in British hands, have a look at
