Had an invite from a friend earlier this week, so glad I visited! Had a fantastic afternoon, the volunteers were very knowledgable, Hut 9 is authentic and the tea and cake excellent. For a different day out and to learn lots about Bridgend this is an absolute must on any bucket list.

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Absolutely fascinating and very informative. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in local history and hope that it is preserved for many years to come.

I noted a ship-in-a-bottle (Camp Coffee bottle) in your \'art\' section. I have a rather similar ship-in-a-bottle but it seems to be a wine bottle and is on a wooden stand. I was given it around 1945 when in Porthcawl by someone who had purchased it from a POW for cigarettes. The background in the bottle is very like that in the Camp Coffee bottle. I have treasured it but if a \'museum\' is established at Island Farm, and there are not dozens around, would be willing to donate it. Can of course easily supply a photograph.

My father Capt L.L.Gasson DCM was cam quarter master in 1945/46. He was presented with a beautifully made travelling trunk, by the POWs which is a treasured family possession , now in the hands of my son. I was 8 years old in 1946, and vividly remember the time. My father died in 1983 aged 78.

I now live in Vancouver, BC but would like to know if any German POW ever wrote his story. I\'m interested to know of any who were working on farms in the Ottawa Valley.

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!

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.
