P.O.W. Diary 1945 February 17 1945 Stalag VIIIB J.H.Hallam

Februari 17 1945 Saturday.


Wake up early, cold this morning, have drink of tea for breakfast, 2 slices of bread. Move off early.There  we are in another barn, feel good today. Dicks’ foot hurt him a little. I have now given him my civvy boots to wear. We make some flat cakes, from rye meal and water, the old Frau will bake them she says. Cakes are sad, but we are so hungry they taste so good. Pass Bautzen today, only small town. Make a duff from rye meal and water, also good.




Bautzen Saxony, Germany.
