I have recently began to write my father's WWII story and have written to the Red Cross in Switzerland for his POW record. In their reply they noted that he spent some time in Camp 17 in Great Britain.
Further research tells me that Camp 17 was located in Lodge Moor, Redmires Road, Sheffield, which led me to this site.
My father was an Italian captured in North Africa, sent to South Africa, then to Sheffield, before being transferred to Camp 35 in Boughton Park, near Kettering.
I am slowly piecing together the years he spent in Great Britain.
Can anyone give me any information on this camp or direct me to any website that might be helpful. I would especially like to see pictures of the site, while it was a POW camp or as it looks today.
A heartfelt thank you to anyone who takes the time to help.
