Tuesday 3rd December 1918 Lamsdorf POW Romanians escape but are brought back again.

Sgt Thomas William Chisholm



Tuesday 3rd December 1918

During the night shots were heard at intervals, telling us that it is either more attempted escapes, or prowling wolves.

 In going out next morning for soup, we are just in time to see three guards marching two Romanians back into camp. They had escaped during the night, and had made for the village about 2 miles south west of the camp, in an endeavour to steal bread from the local bakery. They’d have succeeded very well, had they not been caught. They each carried a sack containing six loaves in each, but these were confiscated on arrival at the camp.
