World War One

Minden POW camp

My grandfather was taken to this camp some time after his capture on 3rd December 1917 and remained there until February 1918. Another of the Derbyshire Yeomanry who had transfered with him to the 14th DLI, Samuel Bould, was taken POW on the same day and was also taken to Minden. Samuel Bould returned from Minden POW camp to the Uk at the end of 1918 after the Armistice.
