Only tangentally related to a post I already did, and this won't get many of you excited, but David found another book made by the POWs in WW2 that made that other book I posted where they shared their love for cars




above is the July 1937 Nat Geo article






the Muhlberg PoW Camp Motoring Club Book called Birds of America that David found in a book shop 15 years ago and paid £3-50 for.

 It’s a collection of bound National Geographical mags circa 1936-39 probably sent by the Red Cross.

Thanks David!   https://www.facebook.com/Justacarguyblog/inbox/?mailbox_id=672089866306730&selected_item_id=100000465704940

the book made by hand by the POWs was posted in March 2016


and I had no idea they'd worked to put other books together until David mentioned it

  2. I'd never seen these before either. I've seen lots of artwork done by POW's, but not publishing a book. You can see the humor that is keeping them going with "the members of the Muhlburg Motor club.'
