Second World War

I am the daughter of an Italian Prisoner of war.
My father Clemente Emilio, was prisoner in England from 1942 to 1946. In particular, from November 1944 to May 1945  and  other four months in 1946 he was in a camp In Eaton Bray. He worked on a farm, like the other prisoners. He was well treated and often talked about Mr Jarvis, the farm owner, but I do not know if referred to this area, cause he also was in Buckinghamshire. So I am wondering if someone remembers or has ever heard of that period when there were many Italian prisoners. Thank you!
