Detention as in "stay behind and do 100 lines" or German/Italian POW's?

If former, see above.
If latter, see above.

Detention as a punishment then? Perhaps if you'd made it clear in your first post you might have got a sensible answer.

Detention in WW2 in Jerusalem. Does anybody know anything about this? Where, etc? Thank you.
I think the British Military Prison in what was then Palestine (from 1939 to 1948) was known as BMP Acre. I remember reading an article a long time ago that a British soldier who later achieved fame & riches (was it Spike Milligan??) had been sentenced to detention in Acre for a seemingly trivial breach of discipline. Beer was involved, if I remember correctly.

Acre being an English word, the name was probably changed after the British withdrawal.
