1917

Description

This photograph, taken early in the war, shows British prisoners of war lounging about on the ground with a lot of free time on their hands and nothing to do in a new German prison camp. The arrival of YMCA secretaries resulted in access to sports equipment and the organization of leagues to promote POW health and morale.
