Digital Archive – Voss Collection: Working at Newton Farm Westbrook
Dietrich Voss was a German prisoner of war at Dorstone Camp between 1946 and 1948, and was allocated to work at Newton Farm, Westbrook some 2 miles away. Supervision at the camp was minimal post-war, and Dietrich records in his biography that he walked unaccompanied to and fro between the camp and the farm each day, though he was later allowed to drive on the farm tractor.
