The Ukrainian POW Chapel, Hallmuir Farm Camp 68, Lockerbie. [02:50]
Hallmuir Ukrainian POW chapel survives as a living memorial to over 400 Ukrainian prisoners of World War II. The Hallmuir Prisoner of War Camp was built in 1942 to accommodate 450 German and Italian prisoners of war. After the end of World War II, the Italians and Germans were repatriated and by 1947 the camp stood empty. Later in that year, it became home to over 400 Ukrainian conscripts. One of the huts which had once been used by the Italians as a place of worship, was transformed by the displaced Ukrainian men, into a colourful chapel, to allow them to continue to celebrate their Greek Catholic faith.The Hallmuir chapel is one of only two remaining POW chapels constructed in Scotland during the second world war, the other being the famous Italian Chapel in Orkney.
