LOCATION OF POW CAMPS IN GREAT BRITAIN

 

LIST OF UK POW CAMPS AND THEIR ASSOCIATED NUMBERS:

This list took me absolutely ages to type in, so if you do decide to copy it, then I would be grateful if you would mention where you got it from - Thank you!

My thanks to Chris King for re-formatting my original typed list into this table format. Note how many of the camp numbers were reused.
