Russian liberated Prisoners of War relax in the dormitory at their camp in Worthing, Sussex. Left to right they are: Private Boris Glebov, Fedor Grishin, Private Vassily Kryvets hidden by Sergeant Fedor Petrenko, Aleksei Matveyenko (at the rear) and Private Aleksei Chibisov. Kryvets and Chibisov are enjoying a game of chess, as Petrenko and Matreynko watch. The original caption states that chess is a favourite pastime with Russian soldiers, as card playing is not allowed.
