After Kitchener

The men of Kitchener camp were divided a number of ways when war broke out in September 1939, and it will be interesting to understand the spread of outcomes.

As we start to get a sense of ‘what happened next’, as families get in touch, this is something we will be covering.

As far as we know to date, the main two outcomes in the immediate weeks after war broke out were that the men either joined the Pioneer Corps, or were interned, usually as ‘Enemy Aliens’.

As the patterns become clearer, we will organise this section of the website accordingly.
