Februari  4 1945 Sunday


Sleep well, not so cold! Have a sloce of bread and cheese for breakfast. Have not shaved for three days. We have done 16 kilometer or more. Was very nice marching today, I think the war is on it’s last legs. Wonder what the folk at home are doing today? I wish I were with them. We made a soup of spuds, 3 onion and a soup powder. We are not doing so bad as yet.




‘spuds’  common English slang name for ‘ potatoes ‘. ( Kartoffeln, pommes de terre, aardapple )
