    Any figures of how many actually stayed, went back, went missing?
  4. My Great-Grandad was a German POW in the UK during WW1, he stayed for a year or so after the war and worked in the UK. He said that he was very well treated and enjoyed his stay. Eventually he returned to Germany (as many foreigners do) as it was his home.
