If this link is correct, the POW Camp was located in what was St George's Bks. When I was in Kingsley in the late 80's, St George's was home to 4ADTR, 32 Ord Coy and 664 Sqn AAC.

Can't vouch for the accuracy of that link as I took it from google.

Actually Joe, I cannot remember.

But the mention of a POW Camp in Minden, and the Barracks that it was possibly at stirs a memory. I don't know where from though!!
