Re: Prisoner of War and Internment Camps - WW2

Thank you Ludford. Yes, I knew it left out some of the Canadian ones. This is a photo I took at the museum in Florence, Arizona, which had a large display of the POW Camp that was located there. I have more photo’s but I thought I would just post about POW camps in general.

Cheers and thank you

"Americans" in the RCAF
