The German  ...Feldivebel Lieutenant who ran both this

camp + Wageonhause, name was Schmidt I think.

He had been in charge of the police + was not

a bad sort for a German, though I don't think

he liked the English. I don't think he was at all

in favour of the nonsmoking order.

Von Gurtz appeared to have a particular dislike to the

English.  It was prison if you did not salute him

even if not wearing a cap.

Soon after my arrival here I drew a Service Great

Coat + Cap which had been sent from home. And

my share of the Queen Mary's parcel was a

pair of trousers on the large side.  For all these

things I was duly grateful.

At Torgau, Cavalier Schornhorst we were given a cupboard

or half a cupboard in which to place our belongings.  These

cupboards were of a sealed pattern issued to the Hun

private.  In Burg + Wagonhause I had a shelf- In the

later place one constructed by my predecessor
