Object of Interest:
First World War Marquetry Box
About this object
Marquetry box made by a German POW at Kinlochleven prisoner camp during the First World War and presented to Janet Weir Adamson (later Stewart) who worked at the camp for the war effort. Janet died in 1928, but her family kept the box as a treasured family heirloom.
The camp was operational from 1916-1919. Also known as Loch Eilde Camp, it was part of the British prisoner of war camp network and operated as a satellite to Stobs Camp in the Borders. The camp hosted mostly German prisoners of war with also some British conscientious objectors. The camp was cleared after the end of the First World War. However, almost the entire plan form of the camp remains visible.
