POW Diaries 1945 February 22 1945 J.H.Hallam Stalag VIIIB

Februari 22 1945 Thursday.


Sleep warm. Have coffee and slice and quarter bread, with the last of the Jerry meat for breakfast. Lie on the straw most of the day these days, too cold to hang outside. It is ration day again tomorrow, I hope they bring more than last time. Nothing very exciting happens these days, we just lie in bed and wait for the soup to come up, no news of the war, no news of home, nothing. We talk of happier days, in between coffee and soup time, so we pass the hours away.
