WWI POW Photo/Postcards

Postby watfordp » Wed Feb 22, 2012 3:52 pm

Please see my previous post -I believe I have now corrected resolution size issue!
My grandfather was William Watford: Born 12.10.1894 – Guestling, West Sussex.
His army details are Sapper B Watford 2nd Musketry –Training Battalion 1871631 &

B Watford Fieldstation 252 Party “B” Company Royal Engineers-
Private & Sergeant 2nd queens regiment 9702

I also know that during the 1917 ‘Battle of Arras’, France he was captured and became a Prisoner of War. I have recently found some group photographs/postcards which I believe were taken during his capitivity.

All the photographs were taken by ‘Frau Anna Nieworth, Gamsen Kastorp, Kr Gifhorn’

In the phto posted :Bill Watford is 3rd row back from front ,fourth from 4 right

Does anybody recognise any his co-POWs?
