The finds on this page are from the rubbish pits of Stalag X1B, The site of the old camp is not on MOD land but the trash pits are. I found a German Signals Corps Phone Wire Hanging Tool in the Camp woods, maybe even used for hanging Barbed wire ?
The first site we went to was once the prisoner of war camp Stalag XIB.

|The German Signal Corps Wire Hanging Tool, it would of been attached to a wooden pole.|
|Jay standing at the location of one huts shown on Kevin's aerial photographs of the camp|
|The site is very over grown|
|I hope I am invited back in the winter when some of this has died down a bit.|
|A memorial to the Russian's who died in the camp of a Typhus epidemic and were put into mass graves here. And a memorial built by the Royal Engineers to all those who were imprisoned in Stalag XIB|
Well That's the end of another crazy adventure.
