POW Workparties

Post by cartoss »

Just to get things started. A couple of photos of British POWs out and about in the Reich.

I am using these and other similar photos as a basis for Brit POW impression that I am going to try this season. Though quite where to unveil it I am not sure.

Found a reasonable reference, by Pat Reid and Maurice Michael. Prisoner of War
Explaination of 4 types of Kommando for POW:
1. Road and railway repairs. Usually rigerous discipline
2. Farming. Hard work, but with perks such as extra rations and possible sex life
3. Factory work
4. Town Work, usually professionals and almost complete freedom.
