Biography: Frederic Dunbar von Kalckreuth was the son of a high ranking German naval officer. Upon the outbreak of the First World war he had been in England improving his English, and was soon arrested and interned as an enemy alien. He found himself on the Isle of Man, but as a man of means he was able to pay for admission to the Privilege Camp. This was a part of Douglas Camp reserved for those able to afford to pay for better standards of food and accommodation. Von Kalckreuth wrote a book about his experiences entitled 'Die Manner Insel'.
