    Stobs Camp near Hawick, in the Scottish Borders, was a major Army training camp from the early 1900s to closure in the late 1950s. In WW1, it hosted a PoW and Internment camp, and also housed prisoners in WW2.
    The Stobs Camp project is helping to make the camp's story better known, and also hosts public tours round the surviving buildings.

    There is also an Internment Research Centre at Hawick, linked to the camp, which provides English translations of the WW1 camp newspaepr run by the prisoners themselves- Stobsiade.
