Hi there, 

 

I am writing a thesis on Cross-dressing within World War One Prisoner of War Camps. I wondered if anyone had any interesting postcards/photos letter or anything related to the theatre?

 

Thanks!

And this from a newspaper article a few years ago

About the Ruhleben Camp with 5000 prisoners

And this has some WW1 - related drag stuff, I think PoW included

Thanks for sending over the links. I'm pretty deep into research and have spent a lot of time in different European archives, so just wondered if anyone had any personal photos/letters from relatives? That I wouldn't have come across in archives etc. 

 

Best wishes, 

Alisha
