Hello - Great website - I used to pass Island Farm on my way from Cardiff to Aberavon beach as a child in the 60s & 70s. I now live in Australia and I am pleased to see you are doing a great job of archiving and amazing piece of Welsh history.

Hello,

I have 'Receipts' for the following POWs :

Vice Admiral Frisius
Generalleutenant Fritz Becker
Generalmajor Werner Siber

My Grandfather was a Commandant of PW 2218 and his Adjutant signed for the above - I think they ended up with you.

Any interest?

Hello - I was told about the site by a friend and have found this very informative. I hope to visit as soon as possible. The Biographies of the prisoners was interesting. One of them was seemingly 'responsible' for my Dad arriving in the UK!

Hello/ I lived in Nantymoel until I was eighteen, and often passed the camp on my way to work in Porthcawl in the 1960's. I always wanted to know more about the camp. Well done. Your website has more than satisfied my curiosity and interest. A great web-site. Well Done to you and your helpers.

Hello Brett, You have a great web site here and very informative, so congratulations is in order. I am one of the team that cut out and removed the paitings to save them from being destroyed, it is a pitty that by now they are not on display somewhere, lets hope they will be in the very near future. Myself and a couple of the other members may visit next year and hopefully we can meet up. Bill.

Hello
Visited on Saturday 23rd and only found out about the open day by chance. What a great day I had. Not from this area originally so it was all new to me. I learned so much and feel it is such an important resource of history and has the potential to be a great worldwide tourist attraction (so long as it is done well). Thank God for the bats! Well done and thank you to all who made it happen.
