Recommended Posts

I have in my collection a book entitled Prisoners of War in British Hands during WW1.A study of their history,the camps and their mails by Graham Mark.

Apparently this is a rare and hard to find publication .

I'm happy to provide information from the book to anyone interested in POW camps located in UK  and Ireland.

It even gives details of ships used for detention purposes.

Is there anything on Redford, Edinburgh (sometimes mistakenly 'Retford')?

Thanks in advance,

Neill

Many thanks for your help.

Hi Stuart ...nothing under the names you gave.

However a lot of the camps seem to have individual names not necessarily those of the Town where they were located.

They could be there but under the Camp names.

Hi Dave!

I'm actually from near that area..I think the camp you are referring to was a WW2 camp not WW1 and so isn't dealt with in the book.

I'm over at the Scotch Corner fair in a week maybe see you there!

Good memory,Kath - my post was ten years ago! Since then I've provided some information from the book to GWF members, but Alan's offer has generated a spate of new interest. Just to stress that Graham Mark is a postal-history enthusiast and this is reflected in his book. Plenty of other info for those who are not so enthusiastic.

Further to my last reply I see there is a note regarding a camp at Stanhope.

It says that it was a WORK camp but does not say what type and that it was called EASTGATE.Its parent camp was Catterick and that it was at Rosehill Farm,Eastgate near Stanhope.

That's it I'm afraid.

Further to my last reply I have found an entry re  ENFIELD.It simply states that it was a WORK camp and was at CLAYHILL LODGE,Enfield..

 

Nothing on the others I'm afraid

Interesting...I have found another entry that simply states Newlandside aka Stanhope (Parent camp Catterick)  Newlandside Stanhope

Under Durham it also mentions a  ROWLEY Camp at  Healyfield,Castleside near Consett..a.  work camp.

Also a few others at Bishop Auckland, & Barnard Castle.

If you PM me a phone number ill text you when I get to Scotch Corner...im interested to talk to you.
