|Title||Official German Cards showing British POWs|
|Notes||Photographs of Prisoners Of War: group of British prisoners in Helmets outside a church (which could have been taken at any time from mid-1916); a mixed group of British and French prisoners being marched through a town by German guards (the French wear steel helmets, the Germans Pickelhauben, the British cloth headgear: given the relative dates of introduction of steel helmets, this photograph must have been taken in late 1915 - early 1916). |
Part of the photograph and scrap album of Revd. Leonard Thomas Pearson, Army Chaplain's Department (attached No. 44 Casualty Clearing Station), discovered in a skip and deposited with the Bodlian Library. Revd. Pearson was interviewed by Lyn Macdonald for her book 'The Roses of No Man's Land', which contains two extracts and a photograph.
