Yes, POWs for sure.
Hopefully, there'll be a more knowledgeable person along but I think the dark blue uniform worn by the man standing was sent out to the camps by the British authorities - presumably via the Red Cross - to replace any that had been worn-out.

Thanks very much for this info, we did wonder if they were POW uniforms but thought it seemed a bit strange they were photographed like this - I could imagine a 'mug shot' but not a posed photo. Was this done to send home a show they were safe?

" A British POW wearing a knitted jersey and tie. This has been noted being worn by a number of POWs, unfortunately it has not been possible to ascertain whether they were presents from home, bought locally or knitted by the soldiers themselves. "
