That one is a Seaforth Highlander, in the Mackenzie tartan.

Thanks for posting these pictures, they give a real flavour of PoW life in the camp. Interesting for me as my grandfather,  Pte Waller, AG, 7th East Surreys, was held here after being taken prisoner at Cambrai on 30/11/17, the day of the German counter attack.

Dolcoath miners

Thanks for posting these up! So interesting. Just in case this is useful - I've been doing some research on Cornish tin miners from Dolcoath (near Camborne/Redruth) who joined the 25th Field Ambulance in 1914 - they were all captured on 27/5/1918 at Guyencourt and we have details of some of the POW camps where they ended up. Richard Chinn (b. 6.12.1886) ended up at Dolmen. He listed Mrs Meta Chinn of Camborne as next of kin on the IRC records. After the war, Richard (like several of the other miners) had to leave Cornwall again to find work as mining was in the doldrums. He ended up in Ohio - his descendants still live there (we've discovered thanks to Ancestry).
