P.O.W. Diaries 1945 April 29 1945 J.H.Hallam Stalag VIIIB

Sunday 29 April 1945


Cold, but fine. Danish Red Cross Parcels came up last night just as I finished my diary ( one between three ).How excited everyone got. Sgt. says these will probably be the last we shall get, no more supplies. They consist of 1 big pkt biscuits, 1lb. of cheese, small carton of molasses, a big packet of rolled oats, and wee slab of toffee & 1 piece of soap., nothing is in tins. Soup today not bad. News very misleading. Regenburg, Pilsen fallen, rumoured riots in Munich. Roll on the boat. O.K.
