German POWs in the UK

Interesting article in the Independent under the heading "The day that Deutschland died: Retracing the fate of captured Axis soldiers at the end of WW2".

On a related note, a couple of years ago we learned from our excellent local bird food suppliers at Eyebrook that a German POW worked and lived at their farm for many years. He did eventually return to Germany at some point, but they kept in touch right up to his death some years ago.
