Camp 48 Clatterbrune Presteigne, Radnorshire was created to house Italian POWs who had been captured in North Africa. The Italians worked on local farms and some building projects. After their capture, they were replaced by German POWs who had spent time in the USA and were housed at Clatterbrune pending a return to their homeland. Several Italians and Germans chose to stay in the area after marrying local women. Thank you to George Lancett for sharing this photograph with us.
