10 Dec 1918: Graudenz

Tuesday. Dec 10.     This morning Col. Corfe went to Danzig, leaving by train at 6.30 AM to explain in person our state as regards grub.  He has just returned, with (to show that we’re not forgotten) an officer of H.M.S. Gloucester, at present stationed in Danzig.  It does seems ripping really to have an Englishman here, in the enemy’s stronghold – not here as a prisoner, but a victor in the conquered territory.  Several items of news he brings.  The best is that another boat is expected Thursday.  If this be so we may get away tomorrow, or Thursday at latest.
