Found amongst my father's possessions. The box is 30 x 20 x 7.5 cm, with carved sides. On the base of the box is scratched "PoW 110. Peter Peterson. FELTHAM 1916".
It makes me think about the first world war, the boredom of the life of a prisoner of war. I find myself wondering whether PoWs were allowed to make craft objects that were then put up for sale, or whether it was just a personal possession.
I wonder about Peter Peterson himself. Since we have his PoW number, could he be traced?
