|Title||Photograph of comedy sketch staged in Prisoner of War Camp|
|Notes||My father, George Foreman, was captured on the last day of the Somme. He left his boots behind as he was pulled from the trench by a German soldier. In DÃ¼lmen POW Camp, the men put on shows. I have 20 photo/postcards, some of the men in uniform, in groups or singly, and some from the shows they staged. Sometimes men took a lady's role, the result could be comical or quite fetching. My dad played the piano so there is no photo of him. Most of the cards are signed, with rank, regiment and country. Should there be any enquiries, my family and I would be pleased to pass on individual cards to rightful descendants. |
