P.O.W. Diary 1945 February 05 1945 Stalag VIIIB J.H.Hallam

Februari 5 1945 Monday

 

Wake up warm. Dismal day, and inclined to rain. Have a drink of tea and a slice of bread. We do ver 20 kilometer today. Stop at another farm. We have a good place for cooking the stew, it’s where the pigs tucker. Dick and I make a stew of our own. We get a bread ration tonight. 1 loaf between 5 men. The first in 14 days. It is now raining. Turning in.

 

Note

‘tucker’ Aussie / Kiwi talk for ‘food’, usually of a very simple and local nature.
