Talet et DUMM
Marched all night
The war office knew 5 hours after scrap how many prisoners we had taken- it was entirely the 1st LH Brigade did it- with half men down with fever.
Germans "KAMERADED" in approved fashion, but I regret to say they got a lot of the AJC Comforts, but we retook it- One big German had 6 Tins of fruit & 2 bottles of Limejuice on him!
I carried 250/-/- of Squadron Pay in my pockets all thro' scrap, the perspiration was so great it was pulp. It's over & Im alive still but very tired sore & stiff.
