First World War Letter to parents of a soldier MIA by 11098 Rfn D Small
This fascinating document is the only eyewitness account I know of that describes German soldiers burning the bodies of allied dead. Prevailing theory has always been that they were buried in mass graves.

Maryhill POW camp, Iraq, during the first Gulf war in 1991.
This never-before-seen set of photos is part of a collection of images of Maryhill Prisoner of War camp, which was guarded by British troops. The detainees, all having surrendered at an early stage of the Gulf war, over stretched the resources of the camp, and many were transferred to Rollestone Camp in WIltshire. After the war, they refused to return to Iraq and were granted asylum.
