Description

French and Russian prisoners of war pull their fire engine into position for a fire drill, under the supervision of a German Landsturm guard. Fire safety was always a high priority in crowded prison camps and POW's constantly developed their fire-fighting skills. The fire company also used their fire engine to hose down the interior of POW barracks to enhance sanitation.
