It's, the Isle of Man.

I am not British, but I believe Isle of Man is part of the UK and has used UK coinage since the middle ages, with just occasionally a special Mann type issue of a penny of shilling.

​Isle of Man is part of the UK, but has it's own banking system tied to the british currency, any years when IOM where not issuing there own money they where using the British pound, in answer to your question the isle of man where using the British coins during WWII... pobjoy mint where producing Isle of man coins from 1971 till they changed to different mint last year, Pobjoy Mint is in England, so all coins related to isle of man where produced in Britain ( United Kingdom) British Royal Mint for older coins ( coinmen spotted error it's always been isle of Man never MenB.)..

There is also a series of POW tokens (three different denominations) that were used in the Isle of Man during World War II (and another token issued in World War I). These are listed in Krause.

The three tokens you mentioned, were issued to German prisoners of war at the Onchan Internment Camp from 1941.
They had face values of 1/2d, 1d & 6d. They were all undated.
I added the 1d token yesterday, and am waiting for validation
They are indeed listed in Krause as KM#Tn23, 24 & 25.
There is also a WWI token, which has a face value of 6d, from PEEL. Issued from 1914-18, for the Knockaloe Internment Camp.
It is also listed in Krause as KM#Tn22
Mintage unknown, but very scarce.

​I'm sorry, my finger was faster than my mind and pluralized.

Thanks for the answers.

This is my Onchan Internment Camp 1d (KM~Tn24)
Waiting validation.
I have never seen the ½d or 6d. There is a ½d token on eBay @£200.00 and a 1d @£28.00
