Crowle POW Camp
Crowle POW Camp was classified as a hostel for the main POW camp at Pingley Farm in Brigg.
During the war, the camp housed Italian POWs but from 1946 it housed German POWs.
October 1946 – 10 PoWs
January 1947 – 55 PoWs
June 1947 – 4 PoWs
September 1947 – Crowle not mentioned in report.
It has always been my understanding that my father, Sgt Frank Fagg was posted to the camp during the ‘Italian’ period.
