German WW2 ID Disc For Prisoners of War / Stalag XII A
1 in stock
Original WWII German Stalag XII A POW I.D.Identification Tag for Allied troops captured or who surrendered to German forces. I believe this is zinc or steel, numbered 83 232. Stalag XII A was a German WW2 prisoner-of-war camp (Stammlager), located at Limburg an der Lahn Germany.
Conditions at Limburg were notoriously bad with next to nothing in the way of facilities. This is partly explained by the fact that Stalag XIIA’s primary function was to act as a transit camp which processed newly captured Prisoners of War before distributing them amongst the other Stalag camps. Word of note that many British Paratroopers captured at Arnhem in Sep/Oct 1944 were sent there directly from Arnhem.
Nice and rare allied P.O.W ID Disc!
