GLen Mill PoW Camp Oldham

There doesn't seem to be much on record.  I have some history and photographs of members of the Manchester Regiment who were involved in setting up the second POW camp in England.  Is this of interest to the Regiment Archives?

Hello and welcome jenny, I have seen bits in the Oldham Chron on the Glen Mill over the years. I live in Clarksfield which is a stones throw from the site. I would be very interested.
look forward to it.
