P.O.W. CAMP, NEYS , ONTARIO

Today I had a phone request from Marathon Museum, someone is coming to do a documentary on the P.O.W. Camp at Neys. The Marathon person knew our Nipigon Museum photo archive had photos. They were taken by Mr. Everett in 1942 and 1943.

The Leader would sometimes wrestle with this bear.
Mr. Everett was not too sure if this was 1942 or 1943 when he took this photo.
