Tuesday 24th December 1918 - A Christmas card of Sorts.

Sgt Thomas William Chisholm



Tuesday 24th December 1918


As a special treat today we have been given a large amount of sausage, from the Germans but I may say that very little of it was eaten as we have any amount of our own food now. I suppose that this was sent as a peace offering owing to it being Xmas eve. Also included in the gift were two packets of tobacco and a Xmas card. The tobacco proved only to be dried oak leaves, and the card we discovered had been intended for one in England, for on the side used for correspondence, were the words “Printed in Germany”, but on the picture side the greeting was in German.
