The POW camp was about half a mile from the railway station at Dalawali and some 4,8 km from Sialkot. The inhabitants could see the snow covered peaks of the Hindu Kush in the distance. Parolees were sent to the camp and they had the privilege to move freely in and around the camp in a radius of some eight miles. Captain W.A. Scott was in charge of the 560 POWs.
