Description

This German orderly is carrying several loaves of "war bread" which will be distributed to the Allied prisoners at Magdeburg. Due to the effectiveness of the Allied blockade of the North Sea, the bread issued to POW's had little relationship to pre-war goods as bakers substituted a number of ingredients for the flour. British prisoners also preferred white bread to German dark breads which reduced the appeal of war bread.
