    This is one of the more interesting Photos I have ever recieved. It is a Postcard photo depicting men of various branches of the German Forces. However, on the back is where it gets interesting!

    As you can see it is written "Prisoner of War Mail" on the top. On the side is written "Camp 21 Ottowa, Canada". After doing some quick research, I found that "Camp 21" was called "Espanola Internment Camp" in the town of Espanola! This housed German POWS during the war and they were kept in old "paper Mill Buildings". There was a story I found of a German who tried to escape (which was rare because they were treated well) and got deep into the woods, until he ran into a Grizzly Bear......he was so scared that he returned to the camp and turned himseld in. haha! I thought the title of the camp was fitting "Espanola" and the Luftwaffe man on the left is wearing a Spanish Cross! I just learned that German POWs in Canada were allowed to keep there rank/insignia on the uniforms, ONLY if the uniforms were kept clean, and in tip top shape. Once the uniforms got dirty or torn, they were given "Camp/work clothes" which had a big red circle on the back of the shirts.
    Interesting photo Bill with some of them still weasring their awards in the camp !!

    That's an interesting photo. The sailor in the middle front bears an uncanny similarity to a couple of the fellows in these two pic's. They are all crewmen of U-35, who were interned at Espanola during this time.

    If you think there may be a match for one, I have further details.

    Ned, awesome to see some other Espanola photos! My guy does really resemble 2 of the guys in the bottom photo IMO. Tough call for sure tho!

    Thanks Paul.....yes actually in the Canadian Camps, the Germans were allowed to wear full insignia and Medals under one condition: that they kept the uniforms clean/tidy. Once they wore out or looked shabby, they would have to wear the camp work uniforms w/ red circle. Another cool note about the camps was that the Prisoners were seperated into 3 different groups depending on there Political views/nazism beliefs. Ex. 1. Full loyalty to Fuhrer/nazism, 2. Neutral (majority were) 3. Almost against Nazism. After the segregation was established, each group would pick a "Lager-Fuhrer" (usually the highest in rank) to keep some sort of military discipline. Pretty neat IMO.

    Chris, Some more awesome photos from those albums man! I really look forward to see some more! Oh and thanks for doing those close-up shots, I am still trying to figure them out! And I agree with Patrick, that guy is a little scary lookin. haha Good idea posting a few each day, I like that. We can take our time and check each photo out......we WILL ID the regiment!! lol
