    Here is a REALLY interesting foto from WW 1! It appears to me that these guys are British POW's, because I see a guard wearing a German Helmet. Look at the rags they are wearing. One is barefoot. Many are holding what I presume to be a a cooking pot. Any thoughts on this foto?

    Nothing about the men in the photo that would make me think British. Could this photo be from the Balkans?

    I have no idea where it is from. I thought British because of their faces. You can't see it as well as I can, if you could then you would know what I mean. They look Celtic to me.

    There are two German soldiers in the photo. One appears to be a member of the military police, note the gorget around his neck. possibly an officer as he also appears to be wearing a sword. Balkans would be my guess based on the dress of those lined up.

    These photographs were taken during the 1916-17 campaign in Romania..........the soldier is a Bavarian, notice the cockade on the cap, it looks IMO to be white, it will have a blue centre, Bavarian Regiments were heavily involved in the Romanian campaign. The rear of the soldiers photo explains his involvement in the campaign between 23rd November 1917 & 14th March 1918. The second photograph shows Romanian POW's being guarded by members of the Feldgendarmeria (MP's). See here for more information

    Prost ! Steve.
