Kriegsgefangenenlager

Datum: 25th February ‘45

Dear Mum, Dad & Fmly, [sic] There’s no sign of any mail from you these days, & I doubt if any will come yet awhile since my recent move, conditions are poor in this direction, & Red Cross Parcels alike. Still the war must end soon and these will be minor items, our cry then will be “Roll on that Boat”. I’m hoping that being here will be an advantage over the other camp in getting home quicker. These days I cannot seem to settle at all, most of the day I’m reading, fiction & other books, life seems much quieter in this camp. The weather is changeable but better, hope to get outside more now. Love to all,

[underlined] Reg [/underlined]
