Description: WW2 North Africa Prisoner of War Medal and Paperwork Grouping with Ephemera of Waffen SS British Free Korps Division Interest, the grouping relates to the service of Arthur Charles Potts Queens Own Cameron Highlanders (Liverpool Scottish) later Royal Engineers. His campaign medals remain in the OHMS forwarding box and consist of 1939-45 star, Africa star and 1939-45 war medal. Accompanying the medals is a quantity of paperwork and ephemera relating to his wartime service and his time as a prisoner of war. Amongst the ephemera is the original printed information leaflet printed on the behalf of the newly formed Waffen SS division the British Free Korps to try and encourage British prisoners to join them in fighting against the Red Army on the Eastern Front. Other items in the grouping include his hand written diary, a hand drawn concert poster for a camp production, photographs of him and comrades, service and release book plus other items. Also accompanied by various cap badges and also his POW id tag amongst other items. A very interesting and complete grouping recording Potts wartime service. The leaflets produced by the British Free Korps are extremely rare as often they were ripped up by the prisoners so to find an original example is very historically interesting.
