Thanks for the heads up on the book Howie, its a somewhat neglected
subject on the forum. Although we must bear in mind that POW camps
were mainly for the 'lower rank and file' prisoners.
Officers ( provided they gave their parole ) enjoyed greater freedoms
in Britain and were provided lodgings in designated areas. As did
british officers ( one must assume ) in france.
Makes me wonder whether anyones written a book on the experiences of
british and french paroled officers living in Britain and France.
Of course in England. their was a purpose built POW camp like the one
at Norman Green, near Peterborough.
Perhaps the Scots might erect 'an eagle' at the site of one of these
former Napoleonic POW camps.
