P.O.W. Diary 1945 February 13 1945 Stalag VIIIB J.H.Hallam

Februari 13 1945 Tuesday.


Wake up warm! But full of aches and pains. Had warm coffee and two slices of bread for breakfast. We pass through the outskirts of  Görlitz, leave four men who were sick at the hospital. Travelling very hard, hilly country; trudge on and on, I am just about on my chin strap. It looks as though we are going to march for ever. Well! We have done over 35 kilo. Billeted in a small barn, just 48 of us. Frau gives us some broth from pig cooking, salty but tasty. Soup comes up late, but we get a good whack of it. Feel very full.
