    1939. There was only one camp for other ranks, Camp 176 Glen Mill, Oldham Lancs. The first prisoners were taken in October 1939, so this film is one taken very soon after this camp\'s commissioning. See Kochan Prisoners of Britain.

    The Officers camp was No1 and there is Pathe film of this camp elsewhere on this site
