During WW1 my great-grandfather was captured and he spent the rest of the war in German POW camp. I remember my grandfather talking about this photo when I was a kid. He told me it was taken prior to his release and that the other person on the image is the owner of the land on which he had worked. Two of them became quite good friends and before leaving he was given a silver pocket watch, we can see its chain on the photo. Sadly it was later taken from him during WW2 by a German soldier during house search.
Anyway there's an inscription on the back side:
Milivoj und Franz Böderer 
One more name appears: Johan Böderer 

The thing that I'd like to know is in which camp could he have been placed if he worked on the estate in Traunried?
I've checked the list of enlisted men's camps and it seems to me that the closest one was in Lechfeld. Could this be the place?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
