Stanislaw Garnicki worked for the British armed forces, as indicated by the “Discharged” stamp on his IRO card. In April 1950 he was officially released from employment so that he could emigrate via the Hildesheim DP camp (“47” was the number of the DP camp there) to Australia. Other cards have abbreviations such as MSO (Mixed Service Organizations) or MSD (Mixed Service Depot), which also refer to work for the British armed forces. Among other jobs, DPs worked as mechanics, translators, guards, clerks and drivers for the British.
