UK Foreign Office Inspection Report
The site of the former camp now straddles that of Woodlands farm and Shooters Hill Golf Club and is / was close to the A207 Shooters Hill Road. It is highly probable that the PoWs were employed on the farm. The farm as it is existing now may almost be considered a city or community farm in that it is small, has an Allotment type area and has substantial educational facilities with a party of school children visiting the farm at the same time as myself.
It is worth noting that this camp may have been used as one of the educational and repatriation centres. Its existence on the FO list and high number lends weight to this theory. During my visit I concentrated in taking photographs of the farm with my DSLR Camera as part of the golf course occupied by the camp has relatively little of interest. However, I took several images using my drone that covered both the farm and the part of the golf course that formed the camp.
