I have a clear photograph of the camp c1915, just not scanned as yet. If you want I will add it to my list of scanning jobs and get it done over the holidays. Die Kriegsgefangenen in Deutschland also has pictures of the camp but I can't remember what they are. I may be able to scan these as well if you want. I say may as my copy is tightly bound and I do not want to destroy it. I also have some other reports but these are not yet transcribed. I did Baillie's report a while ago as he was taken prisoner at the same time as my Grandfather.
Munster Lager was also the location of a PoW camp to which a number of British were sent. I have images of that one as well and it is not the same camp as the military barracks that were there or are there now as the camp was huts and tents, though they may have used part of the old barracks. The huts around the station look as though they are the same as those in some of the photographs of the prison camp.
NB for anyone interested, a report by Lt Dobson, RND (PoW Oct 1914) is about to go on-line now that technical issues have been resolved.
Apologies for the oversight! I will be gratefull for any images that you can scan for me any anybody else who is following this thread
I didnt realise that you transcribed the report by Baillie, it is a good piece of work well done. I am really an amateur genealogist and have a terrible time trying to decipher old handwriting., so I know how difficult it is! I was amazed to read that transcript and felt somewhat in awe of the man that wrote it - amid the emotional and physical chaos of his life at that time he was able to collect his thoughts and diarise them. When I started this thread I never thought for a minute that I'd get a transcript of life in a POW camp from WW1 but am gratefull that I have. I have a better understanding now of the life of a POW as a result
Where will the Lt Dobson report be going ... will it be TNA again? I'd like to read that one when it becomes available!
Many thanks for your help
