Billingham, Cleveland, England

After writing about the living conditions on the former POW Camp at Sighthill, James Preston added:

Communal Spirit

"It may come over as a rather bleak place, but it really was not as everyone was in the same boat.

Although there was not a lot of money, they still had a good communal spirit with parties at Christmas in one of the Nissan huts which was used as a Community Centre."
