Those passengers, who became known as the Dunera Boys were transported by train to a camp located in New South Wales in the town of Hay.
Today the location of the camp is desolate and located on the edge of town. Several of the railway carriages have been converted into a museum and it was here that we spent a couple of hours reading the various exhibits.
Between 1940 and 1946 the camp was "home" to over 6,000 German, Italian and Japanese Prisoners of War.
This final picture is of a small gathering of "Dunera Boys" painted at a recent reunion.
