Name rubber stamp at top of front cover, later ink owner name at front, mild wear at spine ends, small soft bruise to upper outer corners of text; else a VG clean and unworn copy.

They were originally designed to form part of the Wurtemberg War Exhibition, and were actually taken by the photographic section of the Royal Flying Corps." The photos were taken at six P.O.W. camps - Donington Hall, Alexandra Palace, Dorchester, Handforth, Lofthouse Park and Eastcote. The boys seemed to be having a jolly old time, the message to the Hun being you should make nice to British POWs, too.. You can be sure that's the way it was all of the time.
