DPs could reside in different places. If the “present location” that was to be entered in this field was a DP camp, then the location or the number of the camp is given here. DPAC stands for Displaced Persons Assembly Center, which was the official name for DP camps. CMLO stands for Civilian Mixed Labour Organisations, and CMWS stands for Civil Mixed Watchman Service. The abbreviations mean that the DPs worked for the British Army as guards, mechanics, drivers, or typists, for example. When the phrase “German Economy” is found on IRO documents, it usually indicates that the persons concerned were looked after by German authorities and not (any longer) by the IRO and that they lived outside the camps in private accomodation. However, it is not yet known whether the phrase had a different meaning on the Statistical Cards.
