I’ve been reading through my Grandfathers WW1 story of his time in the Royal Inniskilling Fus.

He said he was a guard at a very big German POW camp outside of Dauville on the Lord Rothschilds estate.

The camp was very big and held around five thousand German NCO’s, it was a very easy going camp, they had concert parties to which he and his fellow guards had front row seats, he didn’t understand a word of it as it was all in German.

Has anyone got any info / photos of this camp, and why a Corporal of the Skins was a guard there.....

I know he was gassed, when encamped at Dickibus in 1917, could it be he was on light duties ?

Your thoughts gentlemen......
