X  It was in this Camp that I first made the acquaintance

of a scurulous paper called "the Continental Times." Printed

it was said for Americans on the Continent. It was by far the

most anti English paper printed in Germany. The Germans at

all the camps tried to persuade the English to take in copies.

But no one was paying for it. Often however we obtained a

free copy. In some way it was as good as Punch. The

German has no sense of humour.


X  The method was thus obvious.
