Description

A group of British and French prisoners pose for a photograph at a prisoner collection center in Courtrai, Belgium. The photograph included Lt. Pat O'Brien, an American who served as a pilot with the Royal Flying Corps, who was shot down behind enemy lines (he is standing in the center of the photograph behind the seated German guard). O'Brien paid a German guard a Mark for the photograph.
