Default Prisoner of War Magazines

A bit off topic & if there is a better place to ask this please let me know.

I want to knit the patterns in the Red Cross Prisoner of War magazines & wondered if anyone had any of these in their collections and could photo just the knitting pattern part please ?

My uncle was a POW and it seems an interesting piece of WW2 history often forgotten

I currently have patterns from
1942 June & Nov
1943 April
1944 September
1945 Jan

Thanks in hope

Mel

Not POW magazine but Victoria and Albert Museum has a selection of 1940's knitting patterns that can be downloaded.

Possibly some of the patterns from a pattern book "Knitting for the RAF" may have been reused. I have a PDF but cannot attach die to size. Message me if you want me to email it to you.
