This PoW Camp was for Officers and opened in 1939. The officers were housed in huts in the grounds of Grizedale Hall (now demolished). The Grid Reference, for the huts, is: 54°20'22.70"N 3° 1'19.68"W (please use this format for any corrections, so that forum members can enter them into Google Earth). By the end of the war, many high ranking officers were held at Grizedale Hall. The British authorities used hidden microphones, to listen in on 'private' conversations. The majority of the PoWs were German, but Italian Officers were also held at Grizedale. Books that mention Grizedale Camp include: The One That Got Away' and 'Thresholds of Peace'. Feel free to add any information and/or photos, on the camp or the PoWs held here. It would be good to hear from forum members who know the dates of operation - ie, when the camp was opened and closed. It would also be great to see any images of PoW mail, please.
