Knockaloe Internment Camp was a WWI internment camp on the Isle of Man, at Knockaloe Farm in the parish of Patrick, near Peel, which housed 23,000 prisoners-of-war and 3,000 guards between 1914 and 1919.[1] It was served by the Knockaloe railway station and branch line.

Knockaloe Farm in Patrick, Isle of Man had been used for military training, and in November 1914 was opened as a purpose-built internment camp.[2]
