Description

British prisoners prepare to depart the prison camp at Ouchak, after bidding farewell to the Turkish commandant, who is standing in the center of the photograph. The Ottomans signed an armistice with the Entente Powers in October 1918 and withdrew from the war. While many of the British officers are wearing military uniforms, a considerable number of men are in civilian clothing.
