POW camps Stratford

As well as the camp that Roy referred there was another camp in Stratford
This camp was in Carpenters Rd just before Waterden rd
Italian Pow'S were still there in 1950 housed in army type barracks that still had the POW painted in large letters on the roof.
We often tried to speak with them through the chain link fence.
The site later became a wood yard of GLIKTEINS

Hi Smudger,

My dad told us about the POW camp there, he was always told to go away for shouting through the fence..

I have re-loaded the Adventures of Jim, this time with an accompanying photograph of a house in Broad Street. If you look in the People Gallery you will find it or use this link http://www.newhamstory.com/node/529 (http://www.newhamstory.com/node/529)

It's a great story so if you haven't yet read it do have a look.
