Thanks SPOF. Interesting that there were 2 George Sadler's in the Hampshire Regiment. I didn't think Sadler was too common a name. Small world ay.

Thanks Flntwich. A few more pieces added to the puzzle. Cheers

I count 28 names: 8 Italian, 7 Russian, 3 French, 2 Serbian, 2 British (tho' one sounds very French!), 2 German women, 2 German men, and 1 of unidentified nationality.

Looks very much like the inmates + guards + cooks/washerwomen of a barrack hut at a POW camp. And Lamsdorf/Łambinowice fits the bill nicely as it's only 11 km down the road from Tillowitz/Tułowice where

the women are from. The two chaps front row centre are probably the German guards.

Here are the names, as far as I can make them out - just in case someone googles them one day...

David Francesco - Palermo
Cav[aliere = cavalryman] Mario de Bernardi - Napoli
Ferlizzi, Felice - Montefiascone ([in the Province of] Roma)
Di Peri, Calogero - Marineo (Palermo)
Sartinana, Ambrogio - Masate (Milano)
Ugo Lamburini - Ascoli Piceno (Italia)
Mark. ?Tersan - Odessa, Novoselskaya 40
André Larroque - Français
Georges Noël - Français
Carlo Tellini - Pisa (Italia)
Henry Contant - Franz[ösisch = French]
Giuseppe Colambini - ?Pianibino (Pisa)
Samuel Glückmann (Russe [Russian])
Kolodarski, Solomon (Russe)
Eliasch Litt (Russe)
A. Klaczynski (Pole)
С. Дьятковъ - Москва [s. Dyatkov - Moscow]
Н. Лившицъ [N. Livshits] - Odessa
Radowan Boschkowic [bošković] (Serbisch)
Живдин Стојадиновић [Živdin Stojadinović, Serbian]
Михаилъ Жебранъ - Федосово Шацкого Тамбовской губр. [Mikhail Zhebran - Fyodosovo in the district of Shatsk in Tambov Governorate]
Frau Anna Hunder - Tillowitz, Kreis [district of] Falkenberg

Thankyou so much Afrian

That's brilliant. Its great to be able to put abut of history behind the photographs. I know my Dad will be interested.

I now need to work out where my Great Grandfather was captured, how far he travelled to the camp and by what means.

Having just found your postings I hope this may help some of you in your research :-

My Cousin Herbert Kinsman 1898-1918 died in 1918 and from government records it appeared he died in Flanders, in fact, from the UK, Army Registers of Soldiers' Effects, 1901-1929 ( available on Ancestry) he died in Lamsdorf POW camp .The details follow in case they are of interest:-

Per the UK, Army Registers of Soldiers' Effects, 1901-1929 ( on Ancestry) Herbert Harry Kinsman died in Lamsdorf .per the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website :-

Rank: Private
Service No: 42388
Date of Death: 30/10/1918
Age: 20
Regiment/Service: Yorkshire Regiment 12th Bn.
Grave Reference: XVII. A. 3.
Cemetery: BERLIN SOUTH-WESTERN CEMETERY
Additional Information: Son of Henry and Thirza Kinsman, of 7, Strand, Bideford, Devon

In 1922-23 it was decided that the graves of Commonwealth servicemen who had died all over Germany should be brought together into four permanent cemeteries. Berlin South-Western was one of those chosen and in 1924-25, graves were brought into the cemetery from 146 burial grounds in eastern Germany.

Among the cemeteries from which graves were brought to Berlin South-Western Cemetery was:

LAMSDORF PRISONERS OF WAR CEMETERY, in Schlesien (Silesia), which contained the graves of 81 soldiers from the United Kingdom, one from Australia and one from New Zealand, who died in 1917-1919 (it was used for French burials in 1870-71).

A cursory search of the UK Army Registers of Soldiers' Effects, 1901-1929 has identified the following UK soldiers who died at Lamsdorf
