There are some POW Journals for sale on eBay here:

cannot open it. Cookie issue?
No, just looks like the entire WWii memories site has gone offline in the intervening 11 years.
Will dig about when back at a real pooter. Files might still be out there somewhere.
Tried the way back machine?
No files, but might be some clues:
This link still works Internet Archive Search: publisher:"Washington, D.C. : American National Red Cross"
I have some copies of the UK version which I really need to scan into my computer at some point. Just never enough hours in the day though!
Thanks for the pointer to the other link which does work. Great material.
I'm in the German military archives in Freiburg, and they have 3 editions of the Berlin-produced weekly newsletter 'The Camp'. Would anyone like to see them? If so, where can I post them, as they're over 2Mb each?
You can upload larger files to our Resources section: Resources | WW2Talk
Or they might just attach to a normal thread like this at 2mb, depending on file type.
Or you could forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org & I can get them uploaded.
I'm in the German military archives at the moment, and they 3 editions of the Berlin-published newsletter 'The Camp'.
1. No 21, 24/11/40
2. No 51, 29/6/41
3. No 88 22/3/42
Would anyone like to see them? The photos are too big to post here, so I'd need to find somewhere to put them
Thanks Adam. It's taking forever to load, so I'll do it this evening when I have better broadband
OK , they're on the way by email
Newsletters as sent by Rumdoodle. resized & uploaded.
Please, all thanks & likes to him!
Really remarkable stuff. Thank you very much for sharing; getting this sort of stuff to a wider audience very much in the spirit of this place.
The newsletters are a valuable resource Rumdoodle, thank you for taking the time to post them here.
Nice work Rumdoodle. Thanks for adding these to the thread.
POW magazine vol 2 no. 13 May 1943
You're welcome! There are more journals here. I'm currently looking at a full run of 'Touchstone' from Oflag VIIB at Eichstaett. They are bound and in immaculate condition. Unfortunately I'm not allowed to photograph them...
OK, turns out that I *am* allowed to photograph 'Touchstone'. Any requests?
I'd say just snap everything you can!
Just scanned another one. I have a handy free app for my phone called PhotoScan which makes it pretty quick to do. Might still see if I can scan these to .pdf using my flatbed though.
