P.O.W Diaries 1945 April 27 1945 J.H.Hallam Stalag VIIIB

Friday 27 April 1945


Warm sunny again. The Jerry came in last night and whipped our wireless, it was an electric one too. Now we are without news altogether. Soup was the same, pretty fair. I have been sitting outside, reading in the sun. Bread has just come up, 1/5 of a kilo loaf per man. We have eaten one ration between us. Feeling quite well in health, but fed up to the teeth with waiting and wondering what is going to happen next. Bought a pocket knife each --- 5 marks a time.
