P.O.W. Diary 1945 February 16 1945 Stalag VIIIB J.H.Hallam

Februari 16 1945 Friday.


Slept on and off, dreamed of several different persons, and places. Many planes heard during the night. Breakfast 1 cup of coffee. Rumour bread might come up. Well bread has turned up. 1 loaf 2 men, also a little margarine. How it brightens up the boys to see a bit of bread again. Dick has made a brew of tea, so a slice of btead is a repast for a king. Soup comes up, made of spuds, dried vegetables (Italian), and horse meat.

One of our boys was shot here.
