List of WW1 German P.O.W. Internee Camps Sussex.1914/1919.

1914-1919 Prisoners of War "Working Camps" documented as being in Sussex
"Camp" is a misleading title as most were requisitioned or loaned country or
large houses where detained German internees or POWs were based doing
agricultural or similar work, even after the Great War had formally ended,
prior to being repatriated or otherwise released.
