German PoWs' scrapbook displayed at New Forest Centre

A World War II scrapbook created by German prisoners in the New Forest is to go on display.

The book, entitled Lager 65, contains poems, Christmas greetings and sketches of the prisoner of war camp at Setley near Brockenhurst.

The book was given as a Christmas present to camp leader Max Mueller.

It has been donated by his widow to a project run by the New Forest National Park Authority which is collating World War II memories, photos and artefacts.

BBC South Today's Allen Sinclair spoke to Mr Mueller's son Mike and Gareth Owen, education officer for the New Forest Remembers.
