Recently, another forum has been carrying posts on prisoners in various wars, mainly World War II, although the Boer War has now also featured. The recent thread on this forum on the release of British POW's from the Waterval Camp attracted a lot of interest, and there are probably many other POW-related posts elsewhere on the forum.
I wondered if it would be desirable to consolidate all such posts under a new POW topic heading?
I think it would be very useful. It does seem to be a huge subject. Recently, I have found out many things I had not known previously (e.g. the number of British POW's, the conditions at the Waterval Camp etc), and it struck me that it would be very useful to have a one-stop source for all such information.
Also, it is not uncommon to come across ABO's to Boer POW's, but I wonder how often QSA's to British POW's turn up? I have the medals of two British POW's.
