P.O.W. Diary 1945 February 15 1945 Stalag VIIIB J.H.Hallam

Februari 15 1945 Thursday.

 

Wake feeling lot better, air raid sirens were blowing all night. Coffee and bread for breakfast. Done 20 kilometre today. Heard our planes flying overhead as we march along, saw leaflets falling. Bombing heard quite plainly. We have a few cold spuds, and last tin of lamb and green peas. Bread is a thing of the past. This place is called Hohekirche. We have a soup this evening, very thin. Get into trouble milking the cows.

 

 

Note

Hochkirch  ( Hohekirche is probably the old spelling) in Saxony, Germany, about 30 kilometres west of Gorlitz.
