Under the Geneva convention officers didn't have to work, enlisted POWs were probably busy working in the camp factory

(except of course for the enlisted POWs who are required by the Geneva Convention to be assigned as orderlies to the POW officers ... because, well, you know how hard it is to get the right sort of help when you're in a POW camp)

I am always so, so weirded out by the way nearly every military in the world so precisely replicates the British class system. I know for a lot of the western militaries it's because they were literally created by the British or descendent from military systems that were, but it's so damn universal.
