Its two years since you posted the link to your photos of your grandfather Daniel Cook in Soltau POW camp so I hope you are still around.
I was very interested to see that my grandfather is in one of the photos - the one with 4 rows of internees, all in uniform. He is in the front row on the left.
The copy I have of this and a similar photo are dated December 1916.
My grandfather was Sgt Rowland Hill of the Nigeria Regiment (an armourer) and was in Soltau from 1916 -1918. He ended up there as the ship (RMS Appam) on which he was returning to England from Cameroon was captured by the German raider Moewe.
I have approx.50 photos and postcards from Soltau amongst other material I am sorting through. I will post these pictures online as soon as possible and also look through to see if I can see Daniel Cook in any of them.
Does anyone else have photos of Soltau or information on conditions in the camp?
I am aiming to put this information into the IWM Lives of 1st World War website.
