HMS Timbertown - Royal Naval Division - WW1 - Holland - Internment


Recommended Posts

HMS Timbertown was an internment camp in Holland during the first world war for 1500 sailors of the Royal Naval Division

There is a television programme still available, and for a while yet, on the BBC iPlayer (27/02/2015).

The programme is in Gaelic, but don't worry there are English sub-titles. It's rather interesting and describes some of what happened to these sailors. Little known facts such as how sailors had UK leave but had to return to their Dutch prison are dealt with.

If you don't normally watch the BBC Alba service, (and I can't say as I do), have a look.
