01 Oct 1945, INTERNED - DECEMBER 1941
((Following text dated from other accounts of arriving at Colombo:))
On reaching Colombo we were billeted with such a lovely young couple in their beautiful home, which we almost felt afraid to enter! Our bedroom was so pretty, and I couldn't get over the fact that we would be sleeping in beds that night. On the dressing table were all the cosmetics we could wish for, and in the wardrobe two dainty dresses that fitted perfectly. (I had not worn a dress since before camp days.) I cried over such kindness. We spent about a week in Colombo before being put on the P&O Chitral bound for London.
