British prisoners of war who died in German camps in the First World War have finally been honoured with proper war graves. Thirty-nine servicemen who were held in the Heilsberg prisoner camp were commemorated in a ceremony today at the site, which is in modern-day Poland.
The men, some of them just teenagers, were buried in a common grave after they died from disease and mistreatment while incarcerated.
