POW fence
HFF all, have a great weekend!

Eden Camp in Yorkshire was a PoW camp in WW2, German and Italian PoWs lived here and worked on local farms. Many of the prisoners married local girls and remained in the area after the war. The camp had various industrial uses post-war but later became one of the first themed modern history museums in England. Each of the 20 odd huts has it's own topic one of them being a replica of a U-boat complete with low light levels, smells and noises - how on earth did those submariners do it?
