British prisoners of war, April 1918

large-1

Their faces showing a range of expressions, a group of British prisoners of war look into the lens of a German photographer in April 1918.

The men were captured during the Spring Offensive that began in March 1918 and are about to be sent to prisoner of war camps in Germany.

They display an interesting mix of clothing, including a few greatcoats and leather jerkins and numerous knitted caps amid the helmets. A least one soldier wears the bonnet of Scottish regiment.
