My G.G.Grandad,Christian Seiler,(German subject)was interned there,and wonderd if any one,could offer advice on where i should be looking for records etc(if there are any)I'm not sure if it was still being used for training while civilians were interned?Ironically,his son,Christian,(Liverpool born)died at Ginchy,9/9/1916.If anyone can shed anylight,that would be great.Thanks.Fiona

Graham Mark's Prisoners of War in British Hands during WWI has five pages on Stobs, including a plan of the PoW camp in its later stage, a reproduction of part of the front page of the first issue of Stobsiade, the camp newspaper and illustrations of postal wrappers, pass and censors' marks on mail.
