These interviews were conducted by school pupils as part of a 'Their Past Your Future' project.

Donald Smith, Duncan Mackenzie and Neil Wilson all talk about their experiences in the prisoner of war camps after their capture at St Valery. They talk about the conditions in the camps, the Red Cross parcels they received, the delousing (and louse racing), thoughts of escape and working in the mines or on farms. Towards the end of the war the camps were abandoned and the prisoners were marched away from the Allies. The men talk about these marches, their eventual release and reaching home again.
