|Rudolf Sauter by his father Georg Sauter 1924|
Imperial War Museum hold five letters (18pp) written to his wife between August 1918 and 1919 while he was an internee in Alexandra Palace camp, north London, and Frith Hill camp at Frimley, Surrey, describing (in rather flowery language) his accommodation in the camps, his fellow internees, their reactions to news of the Armistice in November 1918 and prospective return to Germany, and his own thoughts on the war and on the separation from his family (Rudolf Sauter was a nephew of the novelist John Galsworthy, and a writer and artist of some repute).
