    Default The Allied Prisoner of War P.o.W Thread

    Hello All

    As an aside to the Escape and Evasion part of my collection (Escape and Evasion / Survival aids - Silk maps and Escape Compasses + more!) I have picked up a few Prisoner of War related items over the years. I thought it would be interesting to have a P.o.W thread in recognition of those who fought their own war behind barbed wire.
    I'll kick it off with a few of my bits, however, it would be very interesting to see what others have, from dog tags to letters, personal kit to rations.

    This is a recent purchase. It is a shaving mirror (a polished piece of metal) in a British made wallet. It came with two P.o.W currency notes, a German receipt for clothing (I guess clothing issued to him by the Germans although it would appear that he changed camps so it might be what he arrived with) and a receipt regarding his camera!
    I believe it reads:

    Oflag No 3819
    Corpl JAMES
    No 7 Company

    Your camera has been
    received from Stalag VIIb
    and is in the custody
    of the administration Dept
    of Oflag IIIc

    Signature

    For (?) Man (?) of confidence

    Excellent grouping of POW documents and items. It was also a very nice read from a newspaper article of that time frame. I have the post cards my Uncle Joe sent back home from Stalag 17B. If you would like, I can post them.
