Curtain Call (POW Show)
Stalag IX-C, Germany
Supporting Information :
This photo is thought to capture a 'Curtain Call' from a POW show at Stalag IX-C, Germany.
The date is unknown but the photo is annotated with a marker (No. 2167) and forms part of a series of photos from a night of comedy sketches performed by POWs. The collection belonged to Pte. Harry Knox, Gordon Highlanders, who was a POW at Stalag IX-C from 1940 - 1945.
Harry appears within this photo standing directly under the letter 'C', dressed as Stan Laurel. He also appears in a photo of that sketch.
Thanks to Caron Paterson, Harry's Daughter, for sending this into us.
