During the Great War 1914-1918 my father was on the Staff of the POW Camp for German Officers at Holyport, Berkshire Soldier Hans Ungerer acted as his "runner". Hans made this beautiful polished photo-frame for him, mainly out of a cigar-box received in a parcel from Germany, and inlaid it with various coloured woods. It now houses a photograph of my father.
