Monday 30 April 1945


Cold again. We have drink of tea, and polished the rest of the Red Cross biscuits off. Get back into bed after roll call: most of the time we lay in bed these days, to keep warm and while away the time. Soup was as usual again. Back to bed after soup. We have a few raw spuds each: three or four lumps of sugar. Bread comes up, also hot water, so we make tea and ate the bread up,the last bit of sausage and butter. All we have now is the packet of oats and a few raw spuds. Feeling O.K. but a bit browned off. Roll on the boat.
