Recording of the Week: a prisoner from Oxfordshire

Jonnie Robinson, Lead Curator, Education and Sociolinguistics, writes:

Would you guess this speaker was from Oxfordshire? He’s one of a remarkable set of recordings of British POWs recorded in captivity on German soil during the First World War.

'Recording of the Week' highlights gems from the Archival Sound Recordings website, chosen by British Library experts or recommended by listeners.
