The caption on this says that these men were captured during one of the battles of Champagne and the writing on the photo itself is their respective countries of origin, but I unfortunately don’t know more.
I see some words that we don’t generally use.
>A prisoner-of-war camp (often abbreviated as POW camp) is a site for the containment of enemy combatants captured by a belligerent power in time of war. There are significant differences among POW camps, internment camps, and military prisons. Purpose built prisoner-of-war camps appeared at Norman Cross in England in 1797 and HM Prison Dartmoor, both constructed during the Napoleonic Wars, and they have been in use in all the main conflicts of the last 200 years. The main camps are used for coast guards, marines, sailors, soldiers, and more recently, airmen of an enemy power who have been captured by a belligerent power during or immediately after an armed conflict. In addition, non-combatants, such as merchant mariners and civilian aircrews, have been imprisoned in some conflicts.

That look on your face when you find out camp ran out of curry and will be serving beans & wieners for the next two weeks
