Stalag IX-C, Germany
Supporting Information :
This photo shows men from Stalag IX-C as part of a POW Jazz Band performing on an outdoor stage.
The date is unknown, however, the photo is annotated with a marker (No. 1768) and is part of the officially catalogued photos in the collection belonging to Pte. Harry Knox, Gordon Highlanders, who was a POW at Stalag IX-C from 1940 - 1945.
The marker number places it close to other photos in the collection which indicate this was taken at Christmas time.
Thanks to Caron Paterson, Harry's Daughter, for sending this into us.
