03 Feb 1942, W J Carrie's wartime diary
Dearest, We are all settled down now - it is not too bad - we'll survive if rations continue but that is about all. I have lost a lot of weight - which of course will do me no harm. We can get 4 cigarettes a day but no liquor of course - all good for us to do without it. I had a tremendous walk yesterday all round the camp seeing where a few bodies are still left and where others have been buried. I must write a report today.
I think of you all the time wondering where you are and what sort of conditions you are living in. I wish I knew. We'll have a lot to talk about when we're all together again. All my love always Billie
