    Default POWs on a forced march?

    Hello all,

    I picked up this photo today, a group of POWs, i believe. I am seeking your help in identifying the nationality of these
    troops, and if possible a translation of the inscription on the back side. As always i look forward to your input.

    Take care, Mart

    Polish Army POWs from 1939 campaign

    can you take close up of the road sign in the back ?
    we can pin point the location where it was taken
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Reverse appears to read "Polnische Gefangene..." which is indeed "Polish prisoners"

    Clicking on the image with the road sign does enlarge the picture. Unfortunately, it is not so clear.

    It says:

    "Polnische Gefangene werden abgeführt" = "Polish prisoners are marched off"
