Loc: ARMAGH URL: www.stalag18a.org.uk
Whilst I was reseaching my Uncle Robert Center from Dundee who was a POW for a number of years at Stalag 18A Wolfsburgh Salzburg,I have found that there was some Black Watch there,does any one have any information on them? A very interesting site.
The Russians

The information below is mainly extracted from a History of Stalag 18A written by Barbara Stelzl-Marx of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Research on War Consequences in Graz (Address: Schoergelgasse 43, 8010 Graz, Austria).

The photographs come from two sources: Peter Eastwood, son of Staff Sgt William Eastwood, RAC, and Mike Riddle, son of Private Alfred Riddle of the Black Watch.

It seems obvious to me that the majority of the photographs were taken on the same occasion: the arrival of a group of Russian POWs, possibly in late 1941. It also seems obvious that whoever took the pictures was certainly not a British POW.
