My great, great grandad was in WW1. He was a private called W. A. Foden. He was born in Colne and worked for the ambulance service with his friend Private Ellis. Because they worked for the ambulance service, they saw a German soldier injured and went to help. Just at that moment, some German officers took them as prisoners at Doeberitz camp.
He said the food was awful stuff. Everyone in the prison of war camp had to work in the field and the mud. They found it horrible and luckily they returned home safely.
We will remember them
