Meetings: October 1998

Do You Remember?

A series of informal presentations by members, including local prisoners of war and the closure of the Cambridge-Bletchley railway line.

Ken Fletcher notes that the history of the Trumpington Prisoner of War camp was discussed at the meeting. It was understood that Italian and German prisoners were based at the camp after the war and that they were lodged with local farmers. After the camp closed in July 1947, it was occupied by Polish displaced persons and soldiers.
