LETTER: Memories of Pingley POW Camp

I was very interested in reading the article about Pingley POW Camp in the Feb 27th Rasen Mail edition.

The German and Italian POWs gave regular unusual concerts, classical and opera and various Brigg organisations were invited.

I was a counters clerk at Brigg Post Office in 1945 and office staff were always invited, transport was provided and after the concert refreshments were served.

The standard of the music, singing and instrumental was high class. We had some very enjoyable evenings, the POWs we met were very friendly and polite.
