This book is a compilation of the reports by the International Red Cross Committee on the British Prison-Camps in India and Burma in February, March and April 1917. The British camps in India and Burma for Turkish prisoners of war and civil residents in the Indian Empire of enemy nationality were visited by three accredited representatives of the Red Cross. The conclusions they reached are presented in this book. Specifically, the report gives a systemic account of each camp visited including the altitude and climate, the number and category of prisoners, the number of staff with names of responsible officers, the specifications of housing and sleeping accommodation, exercise, rations, clothing, hygiene, washing, lighting, water supply, sanity arrangement and disinfection, medical attendance, hospitals, discipline, amusements, postal correspondence and censorship, relief of destitution, mosques, churches and religious services.
