There was no particular camp that they were sent to, One chap I knew in the Airborne wound up in Poland and made to work on a farm. When his boots wore out he wore sacking. As the Russian advanced they were were being marched back to Germany in mid winter when he escaped and joined the Russian forces and fought with them into Berlin.
