Robbies Rialto Swingers : POW Jazz Band
Part of Pte. Harry Knox POW Photo Collection
Supporting Information :
This photo shows men from Stalag IX-C POW Camp forming a Jazz Band called "Robbies Rialto Swingers".
The date is unknown, however, we know it is Christmas time as the bushes in the background our covered in white frost and the pine tree has Christmas decorations and candles hanging from it.
The photo is annotated with a marker No. 1748 and is part of the officially catalogued photos in the collection belonging to Pte. Harry Knox, Gordon Highlanders, who was a POW at Stalag IX-C from 1940 - 1945.
Thanks to Caron Paterson, Harry's Daughter, for sending this into us.
