Final Curtain Call (POW Show)

Supporting Information :


This appears to be the final curtain call of a comedy sketch show on an outdoor stage in Stalag IX-C, Germany.
The date is unknown but the photo is annotated with a marker (No. 2181) and forms part of a series of photos from a night of comedy sketches performed by POWs. The collection belonged to Pte. Harry Knox, Gordon Highlanders, who was a POW at Stalag IX-C from 1940 - 1945, and actually features Harry (3rd from left) dressed as Stan Laurel.


Thanks to Caron Paterson, Harry's Daughter, for sending this into us.
