Prisoner of War Camp, Limburg an der Lahn, Germany
Captured Irish troops in Germany were moved to a special camp at Limburg and der Lahn, near Frankfurt, for the purpose of forming them into a brigade, with the ultimate aim of landing them in Ireland with German assistance. The papers show that Casement was well aware of the treasonable nature and possible consequences of his actions [P127/5]. However, attempts to recruit men to the brigade were largely unsuccessful and Casement became increasingly depressed and physically ill.
