Red Cross - Prisoners of war

This British Red Cross replica book parcel is how CEM correspondence courses would have been sent to students in prisoner of war and internment camps. The red cross emblem is a special protective sign used during armed conflicts, and its use is restricted by law.

The Channel Islands were the only British territory to be occupied by Germany during the Second World War. Upon the occupation of the Channel Islands, thousands of civilians were deported and interned in camps across Europe.

The College of Estate Management sent correspondence courses to one student at a civilian internment camp in Germany – John Amphlet Moule, who was deported from Jersey to an internment camp in Biberach camp, Germany.
