P.O.W.Diaries 1945 May 13 1945 J.H.Hallam Stalag VIIIB

Sunday May 13 1945

 

I slept , but on a hard bed. Rise at 4 o'clock, lorries come at five to take us to aerodrome. Feeling fairly fit. We arrive at 'drome. Have to wait here till orders. I had my first army dinner today, what a dinner too, with white bread. It is a lovely hot day, we are all covered in dust. We don't leave here till tomorrow: then we fly to France, I think. I have a bath, and feel quite well. Looking forward to the aeroplane trip. Might be home for next Sunday. Roll on.
