Life in Prison

The three case studies in this theme all concern soldiers who were take prisoner during World War II: William Frank Kenwood, John Lisle and Eric Grove were all young pilots whose raids over Germany resulted in them being shot down, captured and imprisoned.

In addition to these case studies, the autograph book of B.M. Ivison, who was held at Holzminden Prison Camp, can be located in the theme Representing War: propaganda, posters, pamphlets, publicity, music, artwork and memorials. It contains drawings made at this prison camp. A photograph of British airmen captured in Palestine appears in the theme The First World War in the Middle East. Two pastoral water-colours done by Hermkuhn, a P.O.W., appear here.
