POW Diaries 1945 February 28 1945 J.H.Hallam Stalag VIIIB

Februari 28 1945 Wednesday.


Weather quite mild. Have coffee and two slices of bread and marg and one apple each for breakfast. Soup very poor today, we got “bukshees” too. We had some scalded mik from yesterday we put in our soup: it made it really marvellous. Dick gets a tin for cooking, a blue one, also some salt. We made a stew for tea. For supper we had Yankee coffee, and two slices of bread and fat. The fat we got off the guard for rackets. Read Humphreys report to Geneva, etc. Today is the 11 day without exercise. I feel very well considering everything, my legs are only a little weak.
