Two shorts items from the Cambridge Evening News referring to the Trumpington PoW Camp. These were in the newspaper in the 2000s.
One of a number of pages about the Trumpington PoW Camp.
Photograph in the Cambridge Evening News about German Prisoners-of-war, 1948, with enquiry from a member of the public. For details about the photograph, see the page about University Lectures, 1948. The correlation between the Trumpington Camp and ‘1025 Company’ is a mistake: English Heritage describes Camp 1025 as being at Histon Camp, Milton Road, which is on the north side of Cambridge.
News item from December 1946:
The spirit of goodwill did not forget the German prisoners of war at Trumpington. At this traditional season of peace, many in Cambridge and district invited a prisoner from the camp to share the Christmas Day festivities with them in their homes, and a large number of men sampled a real English Christmas. They too did not forget the spirit of the festival; among the gifts to Addenbrooke’s Hospital was a collection of toys made by prisoners at the camp.
