A German Prisoner of War kneels to receive Communion as the priest raises his arm in blessing during a Catholic Service at a PoW camp, somewhere in Britain. The photograph is taken looking down the aisle of the hut which serves as a church, showing other prisoners standing on either side of the aisle. It appears to be Christmas-time, as a large fir wreath is suspended from the ceiling.
