  • Short Summary

    German prisoners of war lark about at camp in Holland.

  • Description

    Interned Sailors at Gronigen, Holland / Netherlands.

    Germans prisoners of war lined up in street; w/ guards (Dutch?) watching. One guard walks along holding a young prisoner by the hand! Leading him to his place in line I guess but as they pass camera they both grin; and it looks like they're on a date.

    Prisoners larking about at camp: the sailors are pushing & shoving in a playful way; several of them get on each other's shoulders and have fights on piggyback; trying to pull a guy off the top of another's shoulders; barracks building in BG; long low white building w/ 2 on front. The POW sailors are now playing leap frog; a guard w/ rifle stands at side.

    Recreation. sports; fun.
