    This was a PoW camp, for both German and Italian prisoners of war (though not at the same time).

    The prisoners were housed inside Sunlaws, a large mansion house. It is now the Roxburghe Hotel.

    Lat/Long: 55°33'31.04"N 2°28'10.73"W

    This was quite unusual, for Ordinary Rank prisoners, in my experience.

    The Italian PoWs were the first to be housed, there. The hostels associated with this camp were:

    1 Greenlaw
    2. Lauder
    3. Earlston
    4. Duns
    5. Sweethope
    6. Chirnside
    7. Reston
    8. Greenriggs
    9. The Hirsel
    10. Melrose
    11. Selkirk
    12. Sligh Houses

    I have no information on these hostels and would love to hear from anyone who does....
