Monday 16th December 1918
A large consignment of clothing arrived from Lager 1, to equip the men of the first transport. We had a very busy day but I was doomed to disappointment, for when the list of names was read over my name failed to appear, so Fred and I were very gloomy at having to be separated after all our times of strife together, for he was down to go with this first batch.
However we had to make the best of things, so I helped him to pack his few goods and get him ready.
After that we turned out for a smoke and a wander round the huts, before turning in for the night.
